    Try CPU-z, it should tell you.  You can also confirm (once getting the exact model) by looking it up at

    You may also be able to see it in the BIOS.

    Very Easily.  Xeon is x86/x64 only.  IA64 chips are Intel Itanium

    Good call ... I think I jumped to the conclusion he just wanted to know if it was 64-bit or not, missing the IA64 part.  As leew said, Itanium is a class of its own and not part of the Xeon line-up, so if it is a Xeon, it is not IA64.  If you want to know if your Xeon is 64-bit capable, then check the BIOS or use CPU-z.
