Been programming. I want to put Linux, because is very necessary, but Windu would leave. As far as I know there can be problems with the video card some. If anyone has experience, please suggest.
Features:
Percents - Core i7-7700HQ
RAM — 16GB (SO-DIMM DDR4, 2400MHz)
SSD - Samsung Evo 250GB 960 series M. 2 PCIe 3.0 x4 3D V-NAND TLC
Hard drive — 1TB SATA 7200
Video card — GeForce GTX 1060 6GB GDDR5

It's better to use VirtualBox or is there even any solutions?

Virtual Box is great. With the video card without problem.
The hypothesis is tested in an hour. Download VBOX and download Linux.

And the option to install parallel on two PC axes is not considered?

A thousand and one option.
Says it all IMHO.

1. Dualbut. The easiest, but the most inconvenient. Two independent systems within a single disk. You can work only in one of them, the second in the best case possible for FS to reach. First you put Windows, then Linux, not Vice versa!
2. Virtualization is one of the axes is the host, another guest. There are at least two options Hyper - KVM (qemu + libvirt) and VBox, which gives three options: Linux host, Windows guest on KVM Linux host Windows guest on VBox, Windows host, Linux guest (only on VBox). There are still Hyper-V is only for Windows, Linux guest, but I've only seen in server mode and very long.

If you plan to still play or CAD - then the host-only Windows. Perhaps in the future it will be possible to push video to dev but it is price bitiya in an enormous tambourine, and is not even always.
If the play is not planned, it is better to host Linux, Windows in KVM.

Why do you need Linux?
If you sit in it programming is one.

If on Linux, just to raise your application, and write it you will be in the IDE under Windows - VirtualBox just enough for the eyes. Even CI can be configured.
Or you write something that requires working with the video card?

Been programming.
Video card — GeForce GTX 1060 6GB GDDR5.

If you want to run your program (Steam, Dota 2, CS:GO, etc.), who need the resources of the graphics card, at the primary level of usage is better to install 2 OS on one PC.

Hyper-V is built into Windows 10 solution. Making a virtual machine and forget about its existence, since it is tightly integrated into the system. By "forget" I mean that her routine and emergency on and off if, for example, shutdown-restart PC automatically. Once set up and it works when you need.

In the same Windows 10 appeared absolutely free "Subsystem of Linux for Windows". Now Windows is able in Ubuntu, Sousse, Kali, Arch, deb, that's all. If Linux only need the console and the shell is also can be a solution.

Here still depends on what GUI under Linux will be used if heavy Unity or Cinnamon (or whatever is now fashionable with suistainable) under dev and will naturally slow down, and the memory to eat a lot. But if a lightweight like OpenBox - that will eat a little, and without x's with a bare console - less (the Linux can be installed even in 64MB of memory, if desired, except application software)
