how determine hardware needs on a virtualization project

I currently have 3 physicals servers:

1. :
Microsoft windows enterprise server 2003 R2
CPU: E5405 @ 2.00 GHz
8GB of RAM

2. :
Microsoft SBS standard server 2003 R2
CPU: E5405 @ 2.00 GHz
4GB of RAM

3. :
Microsoft Server standard server 2003 R2
CPU: E5405 @ 2.00 GHz
4GB of RAM

I want to know how I can determine the hardware I need to get for those servers to be virtualize without slowing down.

The CPU usage on the first server is between 10% and 25%
The cpu usage on the 2 others is less than 10%

Thank you for your help
