What is VT-D support and virtualization?

I read this in a review of the Intel 3770 processor.

"If you need VT-D support for VMWare etc, be sure to get this instead of the i7-3770k. The K processor has a tiny bit higher base clock speed, and might be a bit cheaper. If you don't need the virtualization support get the K chip."

The "K" chip supports overclocking and cost more, not less, right?

What is VT-D support and virtualization and why would I care.

Primary software is Photoshop CS6 and Lightroom 4 running only one operating system, Windows7.

Thanks, Floyd
