That is rather a vague query - important questions include what kind
of organism (e.g. bacteria) which affects the size of the problem,
also are you planning genome assembly, transcriptome assembly,
or just mapping reads to a know reference. Have a look at the
forum posts at http://seqanswers.com - both browsing and some
specific searches since this kind of question has come up there
a lot. Generally RAM is more of a bottleneck, but it depends on
the task at hand.
