Dynamips, works great however there is no switch emulation, yes you can
use routers with the Ethernet modules, just not the same.

You can use some of the above list for a CCIE (R&S, I assume) Lab (the
3640's, needs more flash though) (the 2501 as backbone router).

However, I would follow a layout for building a lab.

Internetwork Expert has one
(http://www.internetworkexpert.com/resources/ccierack.htm ).

Some of the equip off of your list is used as alternative equipment on
IE's list

They also have studies based on Dynamips as well
(http://www.internetworkexpert.com/resources/iosonpc.htm ).

There is also rack rental available from here.
(http://proctorlabs.com/index.cfm/product/sku/pl0224 )

Also, here is the equipment you will be tested on (currently) on the R&S
Lab exam (http://www.cisco.com/web/learning/le3/ccie/rs/lab_equipment.html).

I have affiliation with any of the companies listed nor have I used
their products or services.  Just what I've come across in my searches.

If all that equipment is operational, $800 is a pretty good (great)
deal.  Do a lookup on eBay to see what the going prices are for used
equipment.
