Questions about Windows 7 XP Mode

I'm looking to go 64-bit with the new Windows 7. However, I have some old games that probably wont like that. Virtualization is the easiest answer it seems.

I know what Windows 7 Business has a Windows XP mode. However, Microsoft said that it will not be optimized for 3D applications.

Does anyone know the specs for the Virtualization environment? Has anyone had any gaming experience using this tool at all yet?

What other Windows virtualization software is out there? The only reason I would go business over home is because of windows xp mode. But isn't there virtual PC that is free??
