Server Virtualization Assessment Tool

I'd like to find a Server Virtualization Assessment tool to download so that I can analyze system on my network to produce a report that will tell me exactly what we have in place from CPU utilization, memory, data capacity , etc.  Doing this will help me spec out the level of ESX hardware I'll be purchasing.  I heard there are such technologies and tools out there to do this for me that doesn't require the use of agents; but it seems to be a lot of vendor side apps that i can't seem to find on the net.  I'm going with VMWare. . .any ideas?

We used it, it was AWESOME to help us plan how many servers and how much power we needed.  Hope this helps.

not to sound whiney but is there anything free with similar capability. . .if not  then ok, we'd probably let the vendor do this for us for free but i figured we could have something in house too.
