Check out vm-help.com//esx40i/esx40_whitebox_HCL.php to see which NIC cards will work. This website usually has more hardware than vmware compatibilty site. –  jinanwow Jan 21 '12 at 6:59

Get more RAM. There isn't really any point for installing ESX on a machine with 2 Gigs of RAM. You'll only be able to run one VM at a time which sort of defeats the point of ESX.

You can try VMware's compatibility tool at vmware.com/resources/compatibility/search.php –  Keith Stokes Dec 19 '10 at 23:31
