The devices on the PCI bus, for example, are memory mapped and eat up
quite a lot of address space. There are ways to use the RAM between 3
and 4 GB, but you're on the safer side if you put 3 GB in your machine
if you can live with that. Otherwise think about using an 64-bit OS.

Xilinx has a web page that gives some details about the memory
requirements of ISE depending on the target device.
