I need some advice on the hardware specifications that will suffice my need to run 5 virtual machines each having 4GB of RAM at minimum.

Budget is around 1000 to 1500.

Need a case with enough space to fit in 5 hard drives or more.

Any help will be appreciated. I looked online a lot and ended up being confused with multiple parameters, dual socket or single socket, i7 or Xeon, gaming PC or strict server configuration.

Thanks in advance.

Why do you think you need 5 drives? Space or performance? What is the user type for each virtual machine? Is this for a professional work environment or home lab?
