I use a nice MSI GS60 gaming laptop that's a few years old but still very good. I use it mainly as a desktop with the ability to travel with it if need be. So 95% of the time it's on my desk connected with a monitor and keyboard/mouse. Monitor is a 24" BenQ connected with mini display port to DVI active adapter in order to run 120hz. Have to do this because the laptop doesn't have a DVI port and HDMI can't run more then 60hz, which I can't stand. Even when not gaming, 60hz looks like shit to me now a days.

 

- Specs -

Intel i7 4710 2.5ghz

12gb ddr3

NVidia GTX 860m

128gb m.2 SSD

1Tb 7200rpm HDD

 

This gets me around 35-65 fps on Squad with medium/low settings at 1080p. Other new games run better sometimes, like Battlefield 1 I get 50-70fps on medium/high settings at 1080p with resolution scaled down 10%.

 

Razer Taipan ambidextrous mouse which has been fantastic, I know Razer can be hit or miss

 

Corsair K65 LUX mechanical keyboard with cherry mx red switches. My first mechanical keyboard and I love this thing. I'm going to get an even nicer board soon that I will design through one of the custom mechanical brands online. Pricey but you can customize everything and they look more professional.

 

The Corsair ones are pretty cool though, the lighting and macros especially are great. For instance I have a profile just for Squad that turns on when I launch the game. I've lit up only the keys used for Squad (movement orange, voice chat appropriate color, white for text chat and scoreboard, etc) and I have a macro set to Capslock that enables me to sprint without using any keys so I can rest my hands. Squad profile on the board pictured below.

 

I really can't recommend getting a nice keyboard enough. But make sure it's mechanical switches! Go for the legit Cherry MX switches too, not imitators. Red and Green are the most popular. That's not the color of the outside of the key or rhe lights by the way, it's just the name of the different type of switch. it's only colored underneath the key on the actual switch. They have different feels. Read about them, it's pretty cool. Having a nice mechanical keyboard is so helpful though, very smooth and precise.

Built a new PC this year and need to take some pics but for now, spec:

 

OS: Windows 10 Home

Motherboard: ASUS Z270 TUF Mark 1

CPU: Intel i7-7700k @ 5.0GHz

CPU Cooler: NZXT Kraken X62 (AIO)

GPU: EVGA 1080ti SC2 Hybrid (AIO)
RAM: 16GB Corsair Dominator Platinum @ 3000Mhz XMP
PSU: Corsair RM850i
CASE: Phanteks Enthoo Pro (Tempered Glass)
FANS: 4x Corsair ML140 Pro 1x Corsair ML120 Pro
SSD1: M.2 Samsung 960 EVO NVMe 500GB
SSD2: Samsung 840 EVO 250GB
HDD STORAGE: Seagate 1TB HDD

 

MONITOR: Acer x34A (3440x1440 21:9 Ultrawaide)
MOUSE: Roccat Tyon
KEYPAD: Razor Nostromo
HEADPHONES: Beyerdynamics DT990 Pro
HEADPHONE AMP: Schiit Magni 2 
MIC: Mod Mic 4

 

I've not played Squad for a few months so I'm a liitle behind on how it runs BUT it did run most maps at 100+ fps with all graphics settings maxxed out (with AA and 125% res scaling) at 3440x1440 Ultrawide in full servers. 

 

I've got a little over 2 weeks off at Christmas so I'll be jumping back in to Squad and hopefully still have decent performance :-)

 

Reeling that lot off just reminded me exactly how much money I've spent on this PC, and it was pretty much done just for Squad, mental.

LG 34 ultrawide 3340x1440

just bought i5 8600k and waiting 1080ti + new pc.

 

@RipGroove 

very good news for me to see your frames at 3440x1440 with your monitor and GPU

With my current 970 and old pc (i5 3xxx) it s impossible to play at 3440x1440 on my 34 monitor. There are 30 frames between 3440x1440 and full hd.

Mine is just an upgraded store bought PC, so nothing fancy.

12 GB DDR3 1600Mhz

MSI GTX 1050 TI GT SC

 

No SSD and it also has some wonkey medion motherboard.

And best of all, a shitty 350W FSP PSU, wich they managed to lodge just above a huge funnel leading to my cpu cooler and wich is fixed with some kind of ribbits wich i can't seem to loosen.

MSI GTX 980 4gb

16 gb DDR3 @ 1866MHz

Thanks but the TarTarus's d-pad is like a joystick now, I prefer the actual d-pad function of the Nostromo as I use it for selecting weapons, i need the very positive up/down/left/right as oppose to the bowl of custard that is the joystick :-)

Yeah I love them both! The 990's are perfect for music too.
