You can run VB on a single core with 4G Memory but put simply that isn't
the target platform

The assumption is that you will be running on a server (not desktop) with
max RAM and at least a Quad Core+.  A dual core will work but you would be
limited to a very small number of Virtual Machines even in headless mode.

You also want to make sure your Host OS is using a physically separate
Network Interface Card to the Virtual Machines.  When you start sharing the host
NIC with the VM's it slows things down and potentially causes odd
Windows TCP Stack problems.

When you have the server hardware in place you can then fine tune the
Settings for each of your VM's to reduce overhead and lag.

I suggest you experiment as much as possible before moving everything to a
production environment.
