Windows 7: running VirtualBox on an Intel NUC?

running VirtualBox on an Intel NUC?

I'll be building a HTPC. That means my Intel NUC that is presently connected to my TV will be unused. I want to connect it to my Dell 22" display using the included bracket. I'd like to see if I can use it for VirtualBox or some other form of virtualization software. If not, I'd like to use it as a "test box" where I can mess around with new/different operating systems (Windows 10/Linux/OSX) and software so I can leave my gaming/main computer untouched.

Here are the specs for the NUC:
Intel® NUC Kit DC53427HYE and Board D53427RKE
