recommendations of hardware for virtual machine host?

I'm interested in setting up a host with large amounts of disk, CPU and
memory resources for creating Xen-managed virtual hosts.  Have others
done this with NetBSD and have any pointers for me?

So far I'm looking for a host with an MSI X58M motherboard - Intel i7
950 (3GHz, quad core), 12GB of RAM and twin 1TB SATA disks.

I'm also more used to much smaller (<2GB RAM, 500GB disk max) hosts -
what gotchas are there for running NetBSD on hardware of this size?
