Hello Sameer

The best place to see if your requirements are sufficient for GNS3 is at the GNS3 site. Here they specify minimum, recommended and optimal requirements. Take a look at the following link:

Times are changing my friend, and I think the certification updates from Cisco are starting to reflect that , it’s a Brave New World for us networkers! Anyway look at Google Cloud Platform, you can do a lot with it and EVE-NG for under $400 (price of VIRL images) and a subscription to Network Lessons :grinning:
