Install VMware Tools, accept the somewhat lower framerates, and enjoy.

You could do a setup using VMware ESXi, which would run Windows 7 at full speed.

You would have to re-format your system etc
but then you could set up separate virtual machines, one running Linux and another running Windows 7.

I did this on a machine running an older AMD chip with 4 GB of RAM and it runs really well, should be no problem for any kind of newer machine.
