I have recently built a new machine which I intend to use for gaming more than anything. To help keep the machine as clean as possible, I want to have a virtual machine running off a USB3 hard drive that I can use for running Visual Studio, possibly photoshop and a few other bits.
My physical machine is running Windows 8 Pro and I've been experimenting with running a Windows 7 virtual machine through Hyper-V and while it works, the video performance is lacking. I'm not after anything amazing, but I do want to be able to watch the odd youtube video without having to constantly switch between the virtual and physical machines.
From what I have read, RemoteFX would help, but that doesn't appear to be an option when running anything but Server 2012 from the physical machine.
So it looks like I'll give Hyper-V the boot and will use another virtualisation technology instead. What should I be looking at to get OK video performance from my virtual machine?
