    As the title says, i need a new PC, the main goal is that it needs to be able to run as many virtual machines as possible, im in the botting video games hobby/spare time job, and i am currently limited to 4 VMs with these specs, id like to expand that.

    Intel i5-3570 3.40 GHz (Not overclocked)
    16 GB DDR 3 ram
    Radeon HD 6870 1GB Vram
    ASus P8H77-V Motherboard

    The CPU is currently bottlenecking the rest of the setup, and limiting me to 4 VMs, for the virtualization process, i am using VM Ware Workstation, from what i have read, VM workstation does not utilize system resources optimally and wastes CPU resources by routing everything via the CPU.
    If anyone knows any other software i could use, advice would be very much appreciated:)

    If you need anymore information before you can help me pick out parts, feel free to ask :)
