I have a NVIDIA K2100M graphics card in my Windows7 host machine. The VirtualBox version is 4.3.12. I have RHEL7 installed in my VM. RHEL7 works fine. Currently the VM is setup with 3D acceleration and video capture. I have installed virtualbox guest additions in that vm.

Here is the output of lspci which tells me that the VGA is a software/simulated Graphics Adapter. Can  the VM make use of the NVIDIA K2100M card of the host machine?
