Personally I would stick with Intel chipset/cpu if you are going to be using VMWare.
Agree with others re SDD, I would have a 250GB for your main boot/OS, a second 250GB for your VM boot/OS and then a pair of mirrored 1-2TB mechanical drives for data storage (both for real and VMs).
As said elsewhere, no need for a graphics card unless you want to go for more than two monitors - an Asus H270 has dual video out already.

An Intel network card for the VMs would also make life a lot simpler.
