Virtual Machines + Data Server | QNAP TS-h973AX or TS-673A or TS-873A ?

[QUESTIONS] || - which NAS among these 3 NAS would you recommend for my below usage? || Happy to consider other NAS too (not rackmount, however) || - how should I set up the discs so as to achieve maximum performance from Virtual Machine? (e.g. creating a separate volume with M.2 SSD / U.2 NVMe / SSD to where Virtual Machines will be saved and run?) Plan to install 64Gb RAM and willing to upgrade PCIe peripherals such as M.2 SSD / U.2 NVMe / Display Card / 10Gb LAN if necessary. || - which display card under QNAP's Comparability List would you recommend for my usage? || [USAGE] || 1. Virtual Machines for Windows (which will be my main, daily OS) and Linux, occasional photo and video editing, gaming (e.g. GTA, FIFA) || 2. data storage & private cloud storage, with remote accessibility (~10TB and growing. RAID 5 or higher, two disc redundancy) || 3. will re-purpose my current Synology DS412+ as an offsite backup server to this new NAS || 4. hoping to create a future-proof set up || [NETWORK SETUP] || - will upgrade to Wifi 6(E) soon. 1Gb broadband for internet access || - utilizing Virtual Machine with laptop over Wifi. Occasionally docking the laptop so as to use a desktop monitor, mouse and keyboard, also over Wifi. Can consider a wired network connection if necessary. || Please excuse my newbie questions. Thank you very much for your time answering my questions.
