I don't know anything about Virtual Box but I operate an OpenLDAP +
Samba/PDC for 300+ used on an ESX VM with roughly the allocated
resources you specify [although I have no idea about "Video RAM" or
"VDI"].  I imagine the performance of the underlying host may matter
more than your specific allocations so long as process fit into the
allocated memory.
