Desktop for Gaming & virtual machine test lab

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.

  4. i would say rather get a 4770k mainly due to the chipset features and its better than the Xeons in the price range
  5. If I go for i7 + GA-X79-UD5, is that fine.
  6. If I go for i7 3.7 GHz LGA 20114820K 4th Generation Processor + GA-X79-UD5, is that fine.
