I'm trying to wrap my head around running pfSense in a VM. I get external network to the NIC passed through to the VM. Internal NIC to the Linux bridge. VM's are on this bridge so that's OK too.

8GB x 1 or 8GB x 2 enough or should I use 16GB DIMMs?
Has anyone tried this yet? I've got a few old embedded platforms that video would be really useful for since they've got m PCIe for wifi cards that I'm not using. Sometimes it's nice to have VGA locally. Maybe nobody has but I didn't know these even existed before today.
