Hi.
Microsoft advices to install newest full service packs. Other updates like cumulative updates and hotfixes should be installed when you are experiencing problems which may be resolved by them.

Following is unofficial build list:

Humm... Still not clear what to install.  
Excuse me, you need to download SQLServer2005SP3-KB955706-x64-ENU.exe version.
