I would like to build a system for gaming (MOHMW3, Crysis3, Assassin Creed 3.....) and would like to run VMs on VMWARE Workstation or Windows Server 2008 R2 HyperV. Like to run 4-5 VMs simultaneously.

What would be config should I go for? My budget is INR 85000.

As I'm thinking of E5 Xeon processor + GA-X79S-UP5-WIFI + 24/32GB of RAM. Is that viable option for which I can go for?

Thanks

i would say rather get a 4770k mainly due to the chipset features and its better than the Xeons in the price range

If I go for i7 + GA-X79-UD5, is that fine.
