Add a verb to the last part of your question, and we'll know what you're asking.
Is this a good place for an argument?

They need a Nubus adapter to use a Nubus card, but yeah, they use regular Nubus cards. I'm not sure how many they can use. And I'm not sure you can have both an upgrade processor and a nubus adapter in the same machine.

Dude -- the Centris has a aaui port on the back, and you should be able to find a good used transceiver for $10 or less.

I guess I missed the "ethernet" part of your original post. Sorry.

Supposedly, late Centris 610s all had onboard ethernet. Every one I've ever seen had it (probably 25 or so), but I'm sure some of the early ones didn't. You should get think about getting a 650 (Centris or Quadra), and if it has 8M RAM on board instead of 4M RAM, it will have ethernet on the motherboard. Bigger case, but it will take much more RAM and it's easier to stick a Power Macintosh Card in it (the 610 requires an adapter).

I'm not looking for one, I'm just getting someone's old one for free, and if I can't plug a computer into my hub, it is usless to me. This machine is great for like my mom to do emails with, and I love the form-factor too

I've got a quadra 610 with like 12 MB RAM, a 500 MB hard drive and AAUI ethernet with a 10BT converter.

Give me an email at ian@primewave.net if you want to talk price on this thing (I sure as heck don't use it)
