I have a quad core i5 with 12gigs of memory and a nVidia 200 series video card. It works well.
i have to disagree. i noticed a huge drop in performance between native and VM.
Core i7 940, 8gb ram, 128gb SSD, 1gb nvidia quadro fx3800. its no slouch.
i also tried it out on my main desktop. horrible performance:
Core i7 920 12gb ram, 3-15k rpm SAS drives in RAID0, 2xati 6970 2gb, water cooled, etc, etc.
you cannot RELIABLY play call of duty/battlefield in VM without huge performance drops. sure, you can load up a game thats about 3 years old and play it no problem, drop your graphics settings down and probably play it ok, but i didnt spend all my money on hardware to to get only 'mediocre' performance.
