2GB DDR Corsair XMS PC3200
Leadtek WinFast TV2000 XP Expert

...and just a little plus:
Hooked up my PS2 to my 2005FPW, beautiful; I also got rid of my bulky TV because of this and the Leadtek card, so now I have a lot more desk space.

My current box computer crapped out and I just ordered some stuff to replace what is in there now:

Ordered:
1 "Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeMusic Card

1 "Ultra / X2 Connect / 550-Watt / ATX / 120mm Fan / UV Sides / SLI Ready /
SATA-Ready / 20/24-Pin / Modular Power Supply"

1 "DFI Lanparty NF4 UT SLI-DR NVIDIA Socket 939 ATX Motherboard and an AMD
Athlon 64 X2 3800+ 2.0GHz Dual-Core Processor with Fan"

2 "eVGA GeForce 7600 GT CO SuperClocked / 256MB GDDR3 / SLI / PCI Express /
Dual DVI / HDTV / Video Card"

2 Crucial Ballistix Tracer Dual Channel 1024MB PC4000 DDR 500MHz Memory (2 x 512MB)

Keeping:

WD 70GB 10,000 HD
Pioneer DVD dual layer burner
MSI 52X 32X 52X CD burner
56K modem
The current case with extra fans

I went back and forth on the video cards. I didn't know if SLI was better than one single high end card. In the end I went with the SLI combo.
