T-SQL truncating decimal places

i pulling data (numbers) that have 5 decimal places (5204.34000 for example).  these are actually dollar amounts. When i run a query i want to truncate the last 3 decimal places, but only in the results, not in the actual table.

So basically when i look at the results, i want to see 5204.34, but i dont  actually want the values changed in the table (so the table would still have 5204.34000).

 how do i do that?
