so i believe that the VB can also read them as 8 cores ? no idea but if 2 cores makes no noteable difference than 4 or more then its cool

In 3dsmax, Maya, etc. that works but in Virtualbox it won't let you do that as it won't let you set more then the actual physical number of CPU cores your processor has. But, again leaving it at the 2 cores should be more then fine for this situation. On a side-note adding on the the post below yours, while Wubi is good for people who want to experiment with Ubuntu for doing intense tasks the Wubi installation method doesn't have good performance and can cause other headaches down the road.
