Which Xeon CPU is this?

How can I identify which Xeon processor I have in my HP XW8200?

This is a dual processor motherboard, and I want to add the second processor. The System Information accessory on XP tells me I have a:
x86 Family family 15 model 3 stepping 4 GenuineIntel ~3200 Mhz

I see the following CPUs, for instance, listed for sale:
Xeon 3.2Ghz 3200DP 533FSB 1MB Cache DP 604
as well as:
SL7AE Intel XEON CPU 3.2 GHz 3200 DP 2 MB 533 MHz

How do I shop for one that will be an exact match with the one I have in there already?

You can get detailed info using WMI. Cut and paste the following into notepad and save on the desktop as "proc.vbs" then double click "proc.vbs" on your desktop.

If you want more, add more.

strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
& "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")

Set colProcessors = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_Processor")
For Each objProcessor in colProcessors
WScript.Echo " Manufacturer: " & objProcessor.Manufacturer
WScript.Echo " Name: " & objProcessor.Name
WScript.Echo " Description: " & objProcessor.Description
WScript.Echo " ProcessorID: " & objProcessor.ProcessorID
WScript.Echo " ProcessorType: " & objProcessor.ProcessorType
WScript.Echo " Architecture: " & objProcessor.Architecture
WScript.Echo " AddressWidth: " & objProcessor.AddressWidth
WScript.Echo " NumberOfCores: " & objProcessor.NumberOfCores
WScript.Echo " DataWidth: " & objProcessor.DataWidth
WScript.Echo " Family: " & objProcessor.Family
WScript.Echo " MaximumClockSpeed: " & objProcessor.MaxClockSpeed
WScript.Echo " L2CacheSize: " & objProcessor.L2CacheSize
WScript.Echo " L3CacheSize: " & objProcessor.L3CacheSize
