Hi all,

I'm buying a 3770k, want to use it for all its glory in many different ways, but one of the things I use my pc for is virtualising various servers for testing purposes, normally using VMWare Workstation. I had a look on Intel's website and it says its missing a few of the virtualisation features, (Intel® Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d))

Will this affect me at all?

I'm using a 2500k at home and it runs as well (if not better) for VMs than the X5660 I have in my workstation at work. (2500k is missing the same features as the Ivy Bridge version).
