This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Defined "too much". How much RAM do you have? What else will you be doing on that machine? What will that Windows be doing? –  innaM Aug 20 '09 at 12:05
What exactly is your question? –  fretje Aug 20 '09 at 12:05
Also, which release of Windows will you be running? Vista will require a lot more memory than XP. –  DLH Aug 20 '09 at 12:09

It may require as low as 128MB or as much as 4+GB. It depends of use of the box. If you want to play Solitaire on Windows, probably it should be enough about additional 256MB of RAM (I think that virtualized graphic card also uses system memory).
