[arch-general] A question about Arch Sixty Four

Hi all.
I had a question about the sixty four bit port of Arch in general so figured 
this would be an okay place besides IRC to obtain any help I needed.
I wanted to find out ruffly how much memory Arch sixty four will use for any 
program in general, regardless of GUI/console?
I have an Intel 2 core dule  T9600 2.80 GHZ, 4 Gb of RAM installed, with a 
320 Gb hard-drive installed in my laptop.
I tend to put a lot of RAM aside for virtual machines specifically. At 
present due to some requirements, I'm using Arch virtually on top of a 
Windows Seven host.
I want to put this setup later on to Linux, and for now am doing fine with 
this virtual stuff. However I should mention that the host is 32-bit at 
present, and I was curious how much RAM is used in general under pure Arch 
I would probably attempt to alocate about 3GB from the system.
Anyone using virtualization  and VMs heavily on any platform is aware of the 
RAM requirements, surely.
I was just curious if I'd be making a mistake and/or if this would be
