SO needs a new system.
Looking at moving her GPU into my machine and using VM's with hw passthrough to avoid building another box. Less clutter, etc. Also much cheaper to have 1 honking system than 2 mid-range.
how-to's on this seem far and few between, and focus mostly on different software configs, and are not very thorough.

What software?

Looking at unraid, but its website so full of buzzwords and online documentation is extremely lacking.

You're going to spend way more time/money on this than you would ever spend maintaining two separate systems, There are so may gotchas getting consumer hardware to to work n a VM with hardware passthrough.

Unless you already bought Xeons plus Quadro, it's a waste of time
