Get the 64bit - at some point you may change your mind on being all 32bit.
If I were to design your _VM appliance_ to balance cost/performance, I would
get a single dual-core CPU and as much RAM as you would need to run the OSs
you want + extra for overhead and future growth.  And if you are going to
run VMWare Server, use a pared down Linux (Centos is a good choice) as the
host OS (ie no GUI).
