How many simultaneous VMs will you be running, and what OS will be in them?

Since I run Linux as my host, I can dedicate most of the system resources to the VMs (when they're running)

You need a cpu that will support at least 64gb of ram, and I would recommend no fewer than six cores. My personal pref for cpu's is AMD.

For gaming, it's more about the video card than the rest of the box, and I'm assuming you won't be running any VMs while you're running the game. For the video card, no less than 4gb of DDR5 RAM, and 6-8 gb would give you the best experience. I personally prefer nVidia video cards.
