SCCM 2012 R2 with SQL 2012 SP2 - Minimum memory settings?

I've followed a couple guides on setting up a new SCCM 2012 R2 instance.
I've installed SQL 2012 x64 with SP2 built-in, on the same 2012 R2 server, that SCCM 2012 R2 site will be installed on.

Question I have is, do I need to go by the guides that advise to go into SQL Management Studio and edit the memory settings of the server?
It's suggest to set both minimum/maximum to 8192.

But the default values appear to be 0 - 2147483647:
Do I need to adjust, and should I increase the RAM/memory of this virtual machine from 6GB to like 16GB if SQL could be taking up to 8B?

SQL Server memory configuration should be done by a DBA. The default values set the minimum to zero MB and a 2TB maximum.

Saying this we need to know your server configuration:
- How much RAM it has?
- It's dedicated to SQL Server?
- If not, what else is installed in the server?
