the new Intel Core i5 box I built last month can hold 32GB ram (4x8GB), 
I put 2x8GB in it.  CPU is a I5-3570k, motherboard is Z77 based.   16gb 
of fast high grade memory was like US$59

my 2008 vintage Core2Duo box supported 8GB, that was plenty to run a 
2-4GB VM as long as you aren't running /too/ much other stuff on the 
host OS concurrently.   When I bought it, I only put 4GB in it. after 
upgrading my desktop system to the i5,  I took the core2duo, put 8gb in 
it and set it up for my son (a college student), added a SSD as the main 
disk, and wow its fast now.
