This is probably the best thing to use to calculate your needs:

There is an excel sheet at the bottom of the article that allows you to plug in all of the specifics for your Exchange deployment and it will tell you what you need, cpu, memory, and storage (space and iops)

What is the user base and mailbox size? According to that only you can size the server. Also are you planning to implement multi-role server or standalone role.? What about HA? Are you planning for DAG?

Use mbx calculator

Basic config...i would suggest to setup a server with minimum 12 GB RAM and 4 CPU's. Again these should be dedicated to Exchange alone, no sharing.
