oh i didn't know that !!! :( 

okay my question is , if i change my CPU with one that supports the virtualization , do i have to change the Bios itself physically ?? in order to find the virtualization option , or only changing the CPU will tell the add the virtualization option automatically ??

Intel (R) Virtualization tech.
When this option is set to [Enabled], a VMM (Virtual Machine Architecture)
can utilize the additional hardware capabilities provided by Vanderpool
Technology. This option will be hidden if the installed CPU does not support
Intel (R) Virtualization Technology.

The bad news is you are spending money on obsolete tech to do a CPU upgrade. The good news is that your motherboard supports pretty much all LGA 775 CPUs.

Find if a CPU supports Virtualization or not here.

Personally unless you can do it very cheaply I would not spend money on a system that old. It would be much better to do a complete CPU, motherboard and RAM upgrade if you can afford it.
