Hello Dylan, 

While I'm not a Xen user, I am a heavy KVM user. I also use Virtualbox. From your usage scenario, I would use Virtualbox for its excellent 3D support. I don't like punting an Oracle product like this, but according to my knowledge this would be the most workable solution for your needs.
