Only ESXi can be download for free.

I know for a fact you will need to modify the VMware ESXi installation to make it work on that motherboard, and due to a breach of the EULA, modifying or hacking the VMware ESXi installation is not allowed to be discussed here on EE.

There is a lot more to running ESXi than just the motherboard. However, according to the compatibility list, the answer is "no".

Will it run? Probably, but you'll have to do some work installing the required controller and network card drivers (if they exist).

Check here the Asus P5Q3 is listed as working with ESXi 4.x

We've had issues with the storage and network controller.
