The issue isn't ram, its cpu power, even more for mods.

Which is absent in most Minecraft Hosts. None of them specify the CPU power... RAM does matter. However I would imagine most Minecraft use Xeon cores or there abouts. Although I can see in the matter of your hosting, you do say :) Which is good.

No. RAM and CPU power are of equal importance: you need both of them.

Regarding your original question though, I don't know a whole lot about FTB since I don't like mods in general, but you might be able to host 20-25 players, depending on how much memory and CPU FTB uses. I highly recommend that you speak to the author about this.

EDIT: FTB does use more memory, so I really can't give an estimate, especially since I've never run or played on an FTB server.

^^^ this!  i tried running a FTB server on my home computer with pretty much the same specs well not a Xeon but a AMD FX-8350 4.0GHz (4.2GHz Turbo), 8 cores and 16GB of ram i didnt give ALL that to the ftb server i also run 4 others regular minecraft.  but i did give ftb upwards of 6 gb in the end before i gave up on trying to get it to run because it just kept giving me problems and i didnt like how much resources the thing really needs to be optimized.
the earth first! we can strip mine the rest of the universe after. click the up arrow if i helped.

Anything that has 8 cores like that isn't really what you want for FTB.

FTB is cpu, not ram intensive. Mostly due to the things like quarries and interesting redstone machines that people come up with. Unless its unleashed (that needs higher permgen etc..) its not 'that' ram intensive compared to normal minecraft.
