it really depends on what distro you use.. but generally anything you use will use as much as you have (it just loads programs into the ram until it runs out of space).

In my experience, KDE (by which I mean Kwin, Kdesktop, and Kicker combined) takes about 50MB. This is just a *very* rough estimate, though.
Use a system monitor such as conky or top to get a more accurate measurement.
