Most do support vt, check with intel site if the proccessor supports it. Make sure your hardware is on the compatibility list for vmware esx.

What is the goal for the server, if it is just for testing/training you could go with a lower end system. VT depends on the processor, generally most new systems support the function. I would suggest googling the specific processor to verify its compatibility. VMware also provides a hardware compatibility list on their website.

Netscaler Common Configuration How To guides

If you use NetScaler you will want to see these guides. The NetScaler How To Guides show administrators how to get NetScaler up and configured by providing instructions for common scenarios and some not so common ones.

Yes, VMware does, but the CPU must have Intel-VT or AMD-V to be able to run vSphere or install 64-bit VMs. The server you have there is listed in the HCL for ESX/i4.1 and below:

We use the exact same server here and it works great. Uploading a screenshot of the VM Infrastructure Client that shows the details also.
