For my project, I will be running multiple OS's with a virtual machine and practice penetrating them (its my ISA degree). CPUs are the first place to start when building a computer I am told, ($1000 is the budget), and I don't need it for ANYTHING else but multitasking in this sort of way. Could someone point me in the right direction?
Furthermore, explain why thats the right direction??

More cores the better. An AMD six core would probably be best though you need a AMD guy to recommend one (I am not strong on AMD) Also more RAM the better. At least 8 gb. VMs love cores and ram.
