How much RAM for a FTB server?

I've seen users on our Zombie package get 14 users on with Mindcrack, other times, I've seen people barely fit 8 users on. It completely depends on the usage of your server, how large the map is; amount of chunk loaders active; the amount of machines; production...there's just so much to consider.
Hope that helps you.

As far as your RAM question, I like to recommend at least 1GB to run FTB well. What creeper host said is also very true, you have to have a good CPU as well.
To your question about price, for £5 a month, (£30 for 6 months), VPSCraft can rent you a 2GB server running on an Intel Xeon1230V2 that supports FTB, if you are interested.

Both hosts use an E3-1230v2
Host 1 :
Sells 1gig ram for 10 pounds a month, and has 10 users per server.
Sells 1gig ram for 5 pounds a month and has 20 users per server.
Both hosts use exactly the same cpu and make the same profit, yet one will generally perform a lot better than the other. Its also why a lot of companies like your existing one charge per player too, it helps keep a stable server usage as opposed to stupidly just charging for ram.
