It's also worth noting that 2GB of RAM is likely going to leave you with adequate performance everywhere except Dalaran. I'd recommend going with the maximum you can afford, and watching your system resources in real-time while you're playing so that when frames start dropping you can see why. Every single person in my guild who was running with 2GB or under of RAM didn't notice any problems until they hit Dalaran, at which time the game became virtually unplayable. Having experienced the same phenomenon in old-school AV on my old powerbook, I recognized the RAM slowdown (RAM delays look different than, for example, processor or video card overload) and tossed another couple gigs in my box, and recommended the same for the members of my guild. Everyone's problems were solved. It looks like Dalaran uses about 3-3.5GB of RAM, on my box. Your mileage may vary based on time of day, server population, etc., but I'd say 2GB is the bare minimum for maintaining a playable game.
