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
SSD
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.

NAME
pioneers-editor - Editor for the Pioneers boardgame SYNOPSIS
pioneers-editor [filename] DESCRIPTION
This manual page documents briefly the pioneers-editor command. Pioneers is an implementation of the popular, award-winning "Settlers of Catan" board game for the GNOME desktop environment. It uses a client/server model for networked play of between two and eight players. You will need to connect to a machine running either pioneers- server-gtk or pioneers-server-console to play. An AI client, pioneersai, is also available. Pioneers-editor can be used to create new board layouts. Clicking on the plus and minus signs on the side of the board will increase and decrease the board size respectively. Left clicking on a tile allows one to select the terrain type; Middle or right clicking allows one to set the chit number or port type and orientation. The chit number can also be set by pressing the number key(s) while the pointer is hovering over the tile. In the settings tab, several game settings can be adjusted. PLAYING
Games created with pioneers-editor can be played with pioneers-server-gtk and pioneers-server-console, if they are installed in the global game directory. Alternatively, they can be played with pioneers-server-console, by using the --file option. OPTIONS
Pioneers-editor accepts the standard GTK+/GNOME commandline options. See pioneers-editor --help for details. FILES
/usr/share/games/pioneers/*.game Global game files. Games which are installed here can be selected by title, and played from pioneers-server-gtk. AUTHOR
