    32GB and a 3770K should be good for VMs. I use VMware with 16GB of RAM and an overclocked 2500K and it's all good.

    You're not going to be use XP with that system though. For a start XP is 32-bit and only detect and use around 3GB of your 32GB, so you'd need a 64-bit OS.

    I took it to mean that he wants to run XP in the VMs? He will want to run an OS such as Win 7 64-bit as the Host OS to take advantage of the 32G of RAM.

    He will need a separate license key for each VM. It would be hard to predict exactly how many VMs you could run with that machine. How cpu/graphics intensive is the program you want to run multiple VMs of?

    i checked on the Windows Task Manager it says that program is running on Mem Usage: 630,000K +

    the vmware setup is:
    Total processor cores: 1
    Memory: 1gb

    then i will just clone the first vmware.
