I am using the CLC Genomics Workbench on my laptop running XP with 3 GB and it handle up to about 10 million Illumina reads in a de novo assembly, but things larger than that causes problems on my small machine. So it seems you can work with smaller bacterial genomes on less than 8 GB of ram, at least that is my experience.
