minimum requirements for a full bgp feed

In my experience it depends on the model of router.  I had a 3640
(granted, it's old) with 128MB that was just fine until a couple of
months ago, now it's not enough.  For one BGP table you will have to
have at least 256MB in a 36xx router.  Our 720xVXR routers currently
have 256MB in them as well, but we've already ordered upgrades to 1GB
with new NPE-G1s...

Hello All,

If I wish to purchase a Cisco router that handles a full internet BGP
feed what are the minimum specs I should be looking at?
