  1. VM - How effective for games?


    I've just built a new W10 Enterprise system with an Asus H370M-PLUS board, an 8th Gen Coffee Lake Core i5 9400 6 core cpu and 16Gb DDR4 ram.

    My intention is to install several VMs - W7, 8.1, XP - so I can run some fairly simple old games, like Zuma, Dungeon Siege etc.

    These games are in no way demanding - Zuma runs on very modest W7 platforms, and Dungeon Siege is an XP game.

    I've never tried a VM. How effective will my hardware be for that sort of use?

    :)
