I have 8GB on a frontend/backend combo and that has been sufficient.

There are a couple of different "tuning" scripts available. Some of the 
recommendations may or may not be the best. But having them for 
statistics reporting is useful.  For example, they can tell you the 
total size of the indexes in on disk. Surprisingly, mine total 175 MB.  
Setting the key buffer size to 200MB gives 99% cache hit rate. That's 
very little RAM for the return.

With a decent amount of RAM, one can experiment with the mysql temp 
directory (tmpdir parm) on a tmpfs mount too.
