We have been using a std 32bit desktop with 4gb RAM and open source software for bacterial genomes and Illumina reads. Itīs doable but some steps are 4-6 hours.

My current solution is a 64bit 2X XEON5500 quadrocore processors with 32 GB RAM. Commercial software (Genomic Workbench Clcbio). This is running smoothly and a de novo assembly of a bacterial genome is done in 10-15 min. My experience is: The faster the computer, the more likely you are to play around with parameters!
