How do I determine the type of CPU that I have?

I have an HP Proliant Server that currently has one CPU in it and space for another.  How do I determine the type of CPU that I need?  I was under the impression that when a Server/PC has two CPU's they need to match perfectly.  I've looked on the CPU itself but the numbers there are vague.  I've listed all the information that I have below.  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated in establishing the exact model# of the CPU I need.  Thanks in advance.

Intel Xeon CPU 3.0GHZ 4605B264 8545 Xeon.  Its a Proliant ML350 G4P Sn#USM61503F3
