- Dual monitors are worth every penny if you do any graphics work.  I have 
twin 19" monitors running 1600x1200.
- A KVM switch is great to let multiple machines use one 
keyboard/mouse/monitor combo.
- Logitech MX700 mouse. No it will not work with the KVM, but this 
rechargeable, cordless, optical mouse is a dream
- Uniden TRUc46 Cordless Phone 
<http://www.uniden.com/product.cfm?product=TRUc46>.  This little marvel is 
smaller than most cell phones, holds a ton of numbers, clips onto the belt, 
has a vibrate mode and works three doors down from my office.  It only 
works with a headset (two come with the phone), but it is perfect for me.
- IOGear USB Print Server - Now my PC does not have to be on for every 
other PC to print
- Adobe Photoshop 6 or higher
- HomeSite HTML Editor
- FTP Voyager

I am sure there are others, but this is what comes to mind right now.
