Well depends on what you use to virtualize your milage may wary. As far as I know, most VM's don't support native GPU accelration, so yes it would lag as well. I'm running OS X on my windows machine via VM, since I need it for development, however I have no QE/CE ergo stuff like games, or flash videos are pretty much unplayable.

However saying that. Wine might still enable you to game reasonably well. Although for $200 the GPU is good, the HD2000 is still not anything to brag about. An AMD apu if on a budget might be a better option, especially if you want windows.

Thanks Supermunch.
I think I'll just stick with Minecraft and San Andreas on Wine, as that's all I play now anyways. (I had bad experiences with Battlefield 2 on Wine when I used Ubuntu on This Dell E5400)

In the future, can you please not radically alter the original post after your thread is solved. It's possible that this might have been beneficial to someone else, but since you've erased the question it isn't likely to show up in search results.
