Router based test

Hey there...

I am running a small test environment at home, similar to the one I am going to build for the company I work at.

Is it possible to link two Routers using standard PDS cabling? The thing is, I have two servers, each on their segment, and I wish to link these using routers, parallel to my real world environment, where the network will be made from two routers creating a VPN tunnel to each other.

Now, I don't wanna go out an busy my local ISP and open to XDSL lines, if I can just patch em up using regular PDS cabling.

Should any of you guys have a good tip for two rather cheap routers I can use in this test environment, It'd be great. I am looking at buying two Cisco 801's.
