I am a university student trying to find the system requirements for a devstack installation, that would be deployed to a regular domestic pc.

My assumption is that there are certain disc space and memory requirements for installing the Devstack environment.

The plan is currently to use several VMs for a database server and a web server, and if possible use a load balancer. The administration of the system would be easier if the Horizon web front end could be used, so any information on the system requirements for this sort of set up would be very useful.

8GB RAM, 50 GB storage are sufficient for a minimal proof-of-concept or experimental deployment. To this, add whatever resources are required for the VMs. CPUs are normally not a problem except if your application is CPU-intensive.

The minimum requirements are listed here: https://docs.openstack.org/sahara/latest/contributor/devstack.html (https://docs.openstack.org/sahara/lat...)

While it says you just need 2CPU with 8GB of RAM. But the more you can give, the better. Since you compound this with the requirements of your VM and the software running on it.
