I agree with both previous comments. VPS servers with less than 512 or 768M of memory don't tend to perform too well. If you're able to put a hardware RAID card into the server it would free up additional resources you could use to host additional VPS servers.
Your VPS specifications will depend on your server cost, DC cost, target market, etc. If you're able to give users more RAM and charge more for the VPS'es it's a win-win.
I guess what I really want to know is if this specs is terrible, OK or kinda "will sustain it" for a server to host Windows VPS.
We wanted to use the available RAID feature of the MB since it works well with Windows anyway.
We don't have any plans of over-subscribing this hardware node because we don't want headaches down the line as well.
On the same token, we are being cautious about diving into this VPS market and getting toast by our customers if we fail to meet their expectations.
We intend to upgrade it to a much better specs once we get enough subscribers.

Reason: Additional info
If you are hosting VPS's, I would recommend, as someone else has, getting a dedicated RAID card. You will notice a vast improvement in performance over the motherboard RAID option. It will increase the cost but the performance increase will be well worth it.
IMO, you should go with Linux instead of Windows for hosting VPSs. There is less overhead and it will bring down the price of the server per month. Any reason you are going with Windows instead of Linux? We have noticed that machines hosting VPSs perform much better under Linux as opposed to Windows. Just my two cents.
