There's one thing you might need to be aware of with using Virtual Box.

Running your system this way introduces latency into the audio.

If you're just playing audio files, or watching videos, it's not a problem.

But if you're performing music (perhaps using a MIDI keyboard), there is 
over a half-second delay between pressing the key, and hearing the note 
that comes from hitting the key.  This delay (latency) is too much to 
live with in performing music.

For this reason, all of my test machines are dual-boot, running in 
separate partitions, on several different machines.
