You can do this with any distro, my guide is pretty much generic, there are some guide for ubuntu too:
You can run a linux + kvm desktop on bare metal, and create a windows VM with a dedicated GPU, instead of having an hypervisor consuming resources under a virtualized desktop: take a look:
On linux you can use KVM for this, if you had 4 GPU's you could in theory create 3 VM's each with a GPU and 1 for the host, here's a guide i wrote for archlinux
Yeah nvidia + vfio works, you can see my archlinux guide if you're interested
7) The fact that XEN doesnt support resetting pcie devices after a shutdown/reset, which means that for most radeon cards you have to restart the host after the first run or use some hacks (ejecting the card, etc)
Works on kvm
Yeah there's a few patches still needed, specially on intel, i see you're using an nvidia card on your host, so if you're using the nvidia drivers you'll probably need to patch it too, and also you'll need the lastest qemu-git (or qemu 1.7 when it gets released) that support the new pcie reset interface on kernel 3.12, as for seabios the lastest release doesnt require any additional patches, also most of my posts here are outdated you should probably check out my...
Qemu-kvm with nvidia cards works using vfio-pci, there has been success reports of people using geforce 660gtx
You might need to patch qemu and kernel to get it working, see:, as of kernel 3.12 the patches wont be required anymore see:
It might need only one installation, but i think you'll need an account for each vm, since each machine will be its own pc
