Help choosing the right hardware for VMware Esxi 5.5

Hello all,
I would need some help choosing the right hardware (CPU, RAM, # of NICs) for a two-hosts virtual network that I'd like to implement in my office to consolidate all servers.
My  office is small office of 70 users, I'd like to install two Windows 2k12 DC, one per each Host, a w2K8 SQL2008 server, a W2k8 application server. Host servers share a iSCSI storage and probably a FC SAN that I am going to install in the future.
My question is: how  I can figure out the right hardware that these two Host servers should have to support such system? I'd like also create port groups for fault tolerant and load balance . How many NICs cards should the servers have?

thank you for your help!
