Virtualization for mobile on PC

I recently downloaded and started using BlueStacks for playing mobile games on my PC. I had to turn on virtualization, because the program runs like total dogshit without it on. The issue is that it has been destroying my CPU temp/performance (using an old ass i5-3570k)and turning it on/off between play sessions is a PITA. Does anyone know of an alternative where I could possibly cast from my actual mobile device and play on PC? Obviously there is casting technology, but I'm under the impression that's simply to mirror what is occurring on your phone and you can't interact with it on your PC?

I'm pretty ignorant on this so I'd appreciate anyone weighing in who has insight into this type of tech.

My main question here is why you would play mobile trash when you could play real PC games, since you're on a PC? What games are worth this kind of trouble, every time I try to find a good mobile game I just end up angry.

Samsung had a pretty easy solution, but only worked on Samsung phones. That was a while ago though.

Also, have you tried Nox? I've heard nothing but bad things about bluestacks.

I had better luck with Memu or Nox when I used to play ff:be. Nox works pretty well but be prepared to turn off all the spyware in it. Here is a guide I used.

Thank you for this! This is awesome and I'm glad to be rid of bluestacks. My only issue is that I can't find these values in my conf.ini file..
