Hi,

I am building a Work / Gaming rig.

I know that Ivy Bridge beats the FX-8150 / 8120 hands down in gaming but what about Virtualization?

I am working with Virtualbox and buying 32GB of RAM for a Domain Controller, Sharepoint Server, Exchange Server
and Lync Server. (Test Lab Enviroment)

I am reading good things about the FX CPUs from AMD for Virtualization.

Can someone give me some pointers of which CPU I must get for this?

I would also like to know this as I am in the same exact situation. I personally will be gaming and running VM's but the 8120 is far cheaper than a 3570k making it hard to decide.
