ESX Server, VMs for trading platforms

Not sure if this is the correct forum for this but wanted to get some feedback on what I want to do for my next gen. trading system.
I run NT-7 with proprietary signals/indicators from a trading group. My DOM is with Infinity Futures (Infinity AT platform). I basically trade certain Future instruments (ES, NQ, YM).

Due to resource needs of NT and other apps I have running, my plan was to have built a gamer's spec PC server. I want to run ESX server and allocate a VM for NT (8 GB, 8 Core on Win 7 enterprise), My DOM on Win 7 4 Core, 4 GB vm, and another 4 Core/GB VM for some of my misc. apps. (trade room and chat). Then connect to all these sessions via RDP from my Mac Tower which is my current platform for trading using Fusion. Instead I will have RDPs open to each of these VMs from the Mac Tower with the ESX server running in a server room area of the house.

Thoughts? Input? Anyone else running on VM?
