If your getting a good price, 3 (or 4) won't hurt. At first I'm only 
using 50-60% of my memory with all the vm's running. As time goes on it 
uses all available memory. I'm thinking the host is using the rest for 
hd caching. I'd go for 4 Gb myself, then you have room for another vm as 
well as the memory required for the host environment.
