CCNA / CCNP Lab equipment

I've taken CCNA/CCNP/CCSP classes and now I'm planning on getting started with my certs and additional training.  I've basically studied both Cisco books and CBT's and played a little with GNS3, but my question is more on your opinion of what I should purchase as far as building my own personal lab?  What equipment should I consider purchasing for this purpose?

Hi,


I advise to use GNS3 for CCNA, if you want to pass CCNP or CCSP you need to use real routers

You should be ready for CCNA exam.  For CCNP and CCSP, you will need hands on experience.  If not from work, GNS3 should help, provided you can get Cisco IOS files the different type of switches.
