I will also be using programs like maya 3d and photoshop 9.0 and 3d studio max, to name a few.
Any help on what I should, aside from stay with microsoft is appreciated
And welcome to LQ!
Well, VMWare won't chomp up all the resources, but it will take
its toll. And the db-engine won't bee as quick as it would be on
the machine running natively, either.
I'd suggest re-thinking your approach and using an FOSS alternative,
maybe SQLite as an embedded SQL Server...
