Operating Systems Linux Ubuntu use VM to play games in Windows (Intense Games) Post 302562389 by ochieman2000 on Thursday 6th of October 2011 05:44:27 PM

use VM to play games in Windows (Intense Games)

I have Ubunut installed on my desktop

AMD 6 Core 3.2 (will be getting the bulldozer AMD 8 Core when it releases)
16 GB of DDR3 1333 RAM
some HDD's
Nvidia 560 ti 1GB

My question is, how can I or can I even get a Win 7 VM to play games as well in a main install. Give it 10 GBs of RAM or something along those lines, give it some cores and PLAY games like BF3 or just intense games in general.

I love linux and hate windows but EA and Activision still do not release games for linux. I have heard of WINE but it does not support (as far as I have read) very intense games and at the least does not support BF3 or BFBC2. Another reason it be nice to run some servers form this server which just dont work that great in windows that currently I am running from a dual core 4 BGs of ram slow PC.

If I can do this, any hints on how to config it to streamline better.

Thanks in advance guys and gals.

CheckDigits::MXX_002 - compute check digits for CAS SYNOPSIS
use Algorithm::CheckDigits; $cas = CheckDigits('cas'); if ($cas->is_valid('1333-74-0')) { # do something } $cn = $cas->complete('1333-74-'); # $cn = '1333-74-0' $cd = $cas->checkdigit('1333-74-0'); # $cd = '0' $bn = $cas->basenumber('1333-74-0'); # $bn = '1333-74-' DESCRIPTION
ALGORITHM 1. Beginning right with the second digit all digits are weighted ascending starting with 1. 2. The sum of those products is computed. 3. The checksum is the last digit of the sum from step 2 (modulo 10). METHODS is_valid($number) Returns true only if $number consists solely of numbers and the last digit is a valid check digit according to the algorithm given above. Returns false otherwise, complete($number) The check digit for $number is computed and concatenated to the end of $number. Returns the complete number with check digit or '' if $number does not consist solely of digits and spaces. basenumber($number) Returns the basenumber of $number if $number has a valid check digit. Return '' otherwise. checkdigit($number) Returns the checkdigit of $number if $number has a valid check digit. Return '' otherwise. EXPORT None by default. AUTHOR
Mathias Weidner, <mathias@weidner.in-bad-schmiedeberg.de> THANKS
Aaron W. West pointed me to a fault in the computing of the check digit. HERMIER Christophe made me aware that CAS is now assigning 10-digit CAS Registry Numbers (http://www.cas.org/newsevents/10digitrn.html) SEE ALSO
