Pro Grade Virtualization Software


I'm currently working on OSX, and am starting to get into Eyeon Fusion, which is Windows only. I've got my dual booting setup working smoothly, but it's a pain to have to shut down OSX and reboot into windows whenever I have to do any compositing.

I'm looking for a good virtualization software, but the initial searches (Parallels, VMware) have been a bit unsatisfactory, as they're all made for consumer programs and in so doing really cut me off from using my full system.

Plus, they seem to drag my hard drive into oblivion, with constant read/write cycles even when my virtual machine is idle.

Has anyone had any success running 3D software or compositing apps in virtual machines, and if so, which software have you used?

I would expect "prograde virtualization" to be "buy another box"...All of these graphics programs push hardware like...well, about nothing else outside of advanced sciences, so I would temper my expectations.
