    Memory will be the probelm i would think.

    If possible try and upgrade to 16GB, more if you can afford it.

    I presume you are running a SAN for VM storage?

      so there's no problem with processor ?? i can upgrade the Rams.
      thnx to talk about storage ,,, no i don't use SAN .... i'm thinking to buy NAS or to install openfiler on another DL380 g5 with the same processor . what's ur opinion ?

        So you have 2 Quad core Processors per (future) host. That will give you 16 cores in total which will be sufficient to run 5 VM's.
        I suggest to upgrade the RAM to at least 16GB, although you might think about 32GB each, depending on the requirements.

        About the storage, don't go cheap to cheap on it. The underlying disk subsystem often becomes the bottleneck of a lot of virtualized environments.
