Routers and switches for CCNP

I just got my Cisco CCNA and used Router Sims. I want to go onto CCNP. This time around I want to use real routers and switchs.

For Cisco's new requirements can I use 2600 searies routers and 2900 switches. Whats the most inexpensive way to purchase these devices.

Thanks

Those are pretty inexpensive, not sure they are actually the right devices for the current revision of testing.

One option is to use GNS3 for all the routing and get a pair of 3550s off ebay, and a 2950 to fill out a triangle for the switching. Not sure whats on the tshoot lol.

just use dynagen(back end to GNS3). I dont recommend GNS3 at all.

check out my sticky. Its pretty conclusive. For the switch portion, you can do 99% of it with most 2900 switches, obviously read into the 6500 as they mention stuff relating to SSO on that exam.
