Anybody has any thoughts on the performance/workability part of my question? Will I be able to use a VM as if it was my main OS (including dual screen support) and will it be able to edit/watch full HD video?

No, it's not the processes. I'm pretty successful in forcing Windows to only run processes I approve of ;) I occasionally do some 'maintenance' (uninstall/delete all stuff I don't use anymore, reorganize data on the disks and free up disk space, check for spyware/viruses with a second scanner, run reg cleaners, etc), but somehow Windows always manages to slow down. So, to be completely honest, I don;t even know what exactly is polluting my Windows installation.

It's a Quad Core 2.33 GHz (sounds familiar? :-) ) with 4 GB. Next to upgrading to a dual screen setup I also want to upgrade the RAM to 8 or 16GB
