Yes it can be done, as said using Virtual machines, where you seperate the pc into 3 parts. 1 machine per game and one base. You'll want 8Gb for the base and an absolute minimum of 4Gb for each VM, with gaming more like 8Gb each. So a total of 32Gb would suffice. Having large, fast storage would be a bonus, 500Gb ssd minimum

Yes, in theory you could run two instances of Windows simultaneously using VMs. Would assign half the cores and one GPU to each VM. Would want at least 16GB of total memory. Not sure what performance would be like though.

Can you use two mice and keyboards?
Like assign different us ports to each machine?
and use two monitors?
basically i want two gaming machines in one case and one CPU

Each game would take half of all common resources like CPU cores/threads, RAM, disk and GPU so you actually need twice as much power as for a single game. Also to stay legal you need two Windows licenses because even windows in a VM are another installation requiring own license.
All that would actually only save is desk space.
