It's depend mainly about what your site is doing.
Anyway, mines are dealing with large JPEG images and
consume quite lot of memory. Unfortunately, it seems
that memory allocated by apache and/or php are not
always released to the system.

Do avoid resources problem, I reduced both MaxClients
and MaxRequestsPerChild in order to force more
frequent child recycling (0 means unlimited).

My production system is an old sparc station w/ 128 or
256 Mb of RAM depending on my cluster status.
