16 GB Ram is not minimum for your requirement, they are more than sufficient to run it.

Opt for the following components:-

AMD FX-8320 @ 9.8K (8 Core, 3.6 GHz with 4.2 GHz turbo, 8MB L2 + 8MB L3)
ECS 970A-Delux motherboard @ 5.5K
HIS HD 6450 1GB @ 2.6K
Corsair/G-Skill 1333 MHz 8GB X 1 DDR3 @ 42K
WD Caviar Blue 500 GB SATA III 6 Gbps @ 3K
Dell IN2030M 20" 1600 X 900 LED Display @ 6K
Any standard Keyboard and Mouse @ 0.5K

Bro,
Sharepoint 2010 will be run as a VPC , Microsoft recommends 16 GB .

ECS 970A-Delux, is better than M5A97 EVO ? Also does the mobo have 3 slots for RAM for further upgrade ?
