I'm not necessarily sure that's what you're really wanting. What you 1st need are specs for your server model (here: http://dcse.dell.com/ifr/PowerEdge/PE1850/features.asp); from there, you need to see if it's compatible with VMWare (HCL here: http://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/search.php and here: http://communities.vmware.com/cshwsw.jspa).

Hope that helps.

Unfortunately no ... 9G servers (1950, 2900, etc.) were the first to support procs with VT.

Even if you can find a CPU to run Intel VT you also need a setting in the BIOS to enable it.  Without this you will not be able to use it
