Are there any socket Xeon 603 or 604 CPU's that support VT-X that I can replace the stock one with?

The Xeon E7300 series is your only bet.

Ask Mark states there are no 603 socket chips with VT-X but quite a few 604's - the best you can have being the 'Dunnington' series, some of which have 6 cores, so pretty good really. They seem to be available in the UK for around £1000 but you may find them cheaper elsewhere, oh and don't forget to match or come under the TDP budget ok.
