SQL or Exchange memory

I am investing in another server to take some of the load off another older server that is running 2 Hyper-V machines.  One of the Virtual machines is a SQL server and the other is my exchange server.  Which of these 2 will benefit more from a machine with more available RAM?

SQL. Your users are probably waiting for the results of the queries and a couple of seconds can make all the difference.

Even if emails are 30 seconds late, nobody will see!

Definitely SQL since SQL is talking about 80% available memory if you'll set no limit to use.
My Exchange is taking 40$ of memory from available 48GB but SQL is using 38GB from 48 available.
