I am about to buy some compute nodes for a mini-cluster (mainly for running
gromacs simulations).
I have just been asked:
 'One factor that needs to be considered is how much memory should be
supplied per node, I suspect the choice is between 4GB & 8GB per node (ie.
0.5 or 1 GB per processor-core for an 8 processor-core node).' 

by our HPC technicians. Any advice as to which I should go for, the 4 or 8
GB version?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Best wishes,
