SQL Server 2005 Scripts (creation of new databases)

algotube used Ask the Experts™
Hello experts;

      I have just taken over the SQL Server DBA position. I have noticed that some new databases have been created when 3rd party applications have been installed without me even knowing about it (this will be changing pretty fast)

I have seen this scenario come up a couple of times now and would like to know if there is a script I can use and run to view new created databases on SQL Server 2005.  I know I can use management studio and connec to the instance and go through the databases but  I rather just use a script.  

Thank you and have a great weekend
