It's an okay deal I suppose. But that RAM stick is worth diddly squat. And that motherboard is worth $75.

Which begs the question; would I pay as much for a used, Sample CPU as a brand new consumer-release version costs in order to snag a used motherboard that is worth about 10% of the CPU cost?

Double-nope.
Aww c'mon :( :(

also is Centauri from Babylon 5 or something else?

I am not sure why anyone would want one of these, they do not clock anywhere near as high as the retail chips. It was said the ones the mobo makers had were all low clock duds.

couldn't you consider them as prototypes?
