My latest DIY Computer

My latest DIY computer: i7 CPU, 16GB RAM, full SSD drive, Nvidia GTX 650 GPU, Gold-class PSU and a brand new LED monitor. In a blink of eye, Windows and most apps will fire up instantly without delay. All in for just SGD 1,600. Realised my dream to have a home "Data Center in a Box" by enabling Hyper-V for both entertainment and R&D purposes. I can bet that this monster can run faster than all the 5-figure and 6-figure servers at my workplace.

As for Cisco routers simulation, I'll need VMWare ESXi for the CSR1000V. I'll work on ESXi USB stick for alternate boot, using my old laptop to vSphere in.
