If it is a Linux machine, you can check like this

cat /proc/cpuinfo

if PAE is there in flag field, it'll support virtualization s/ws like VMware, XEN etc. Even if processor doesnt have VT technology

If you are buying a CPU, try using AMD. Their CPUs are pretty consistent with virtualization support, unlike Intel CPUs which seem to have a real hit-and-miss approach to enabling VT support.

See http://www.tomshardware.com/news/win...ntel,7709.html
and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X86_virtualization for more info.
