I also run it on a quadcore XEON with 16GB as a general dev machine
including LAMP stack and it is very fast on that setup.
Most of the time, only a few of the cores are used and when I have
looked at memory usage it is never anywhere nearing using up the 16GB.
For a new box I would recommend 16GB though just because the cost
difference between 8 GB and 16 GB isn't that great unless you are on a
really tight budget (as I usually am) and even then, if you can find a
way to go 16 GB do it, because it helps future-proof the box so it is
usable for many years into the future.
