everyone needs a gaming rig powerful enough to handle what you want to play AND you need a server to host.

i don't play the new computer games, someone else here will probably know more about specifics.

best bet would be separate pcs. for gaming you can build em pretty cheap. I work at a comp store so i can give you a ruff estimate if you need.

yeah get seperate PC's, game streaming even over a LAN just isnt worth it, and Virtual desktops are not meant for gaming. it would end up as cheaper and easier in the long run just to buy a few competent pc's in a bulk setting, then upgrade them as needed.

I recommend contacting manufacturers on prices for "6+ gaming machines"
