Processor brand intel or AMD ?

Ryzen 7 or i7 ?

6 cores or 8 cores processors 

16 GB or 32 GB RAM ?

SSD ? and what about graphics card ?

Please provide your suggestion and input.

If it is for CCIE lab you can build an server with AMD Ryzen 9 3900X which is having cpu cores of 16 and of 32 Threads.

 If you are going to use IOU then even an old i5 can do the job (my laptop has an i5 4th generation and 8 gb of ram).

If you are going to use iosv then an i7 is needed with 16 gb of ram.

If you are intended to run more complicate scenarios with crs and xrv you need a ryzen with at least 32 gb of ram.

My desktop is an i7 with 32 gb of ram and i can say that i was able to run even the ccie sp labs of ine (10 iou and 2 XRv).
