Post ESXi 4.1 U1 on Asus P7Q57-M DO and Intel Core i5-650
I'm very much a n00b to esxi, but I am currently testing the following setup for an office server:

Asus P7Q57-M DO (Q57 chipset with vt-d support)
Intel Core i5-650
8GB (2x 4GB) Kingston DDR3 1333 CL9 (KVR1333D3N9K2/8G)
Samsung SpinPoint F1 750GB (HD753LJ) in AHCI mode
Using the on-board Intel WG82578DM C0 Gigabit LAN

Installed without any hacks, straight off the CD. I've been running windows SBS 2011 Essentials, Ubuntu Server 10.04, XP and Win7 vms on it thus far without any glitches.

I've ran the CPUid utility and it passes all the tests / has a yes next to everything. I can't see if it supports FT though.

This is just a test setup to have a go at running SBS under esxi. I will expand it with further storage, ram, and another network card in due time. I will keep this post updated with any progress.

I am looking at duplicating your setup with the exception of using a quad core i5. Have you ahd any issues? updated to the latest and greatest?

are you able to run 64bit guests ok?

Well, SBS 2011 requires 64bit support, so yes, you can run 64bit guests.
