I recently purchased some new components to build my latest gaming machine. My plan was/is to dual boot the machine as I am a developer for a living and spend most of my time in OS X. But with what I do I can just as easily spend my development time in Linux. So my thought was to dual boot the machine and just swap over when I want to game. However, technology has come a long way since I last tried virtualization for gaming and I'm wondering if we've made enough progress for me to give it another shot?
Here are my system specs, what do you think?
Motherboard - ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z
Processor - Intel Core i7-2600K
Hard Drive - OCZ Vertex 3 – MAX IOPS Edition 240GB SATA III MLC SSD
Video Cards - 2x NVIDIA GTX 580 1.5GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0
Memory - 16GB G.Skill DDR3 PC3-17000 2133MHz RipjawsX Series (9-11-9-28)
Optical Drive - LG Black 12X BD-ROM Blue-Ray
Power Supply - Corsair Professional Series Gold 850AX
Some things I'm planning on playing..
Star Wars: The Old Republic
World of Warcraft
Guild Wars 2
