I use a crappy laptop - a Dell Latitude E6400, it has 4gb ram, an Intel P8600 dual core @ 2.4 GHz, whatever ****ty onboard video card.
It's good enough to run all my wargames, and it works fine for other games I'm currently playing, like Kerbal Space Program, AI War, Warlock, stuff like that.
Most important of all, I can play World of Tanks at 30fps when I dial down the graphics, which is my main gaming fix for the past 2 years.
You truly don't need a good game machine to play most everything you want, unless you're looking for a multi-screen set up with crazy resolutions.
I used to try to keep up with the latest gaming rigs, but after the last one blew up on me I was short on funds and decided to wait to get another one. That wait has now turned into 4 years, since I realized for the gaming I do a regular laptop works just as fine. And since my employer will provide me with an endless procession of cheap laptops, I'm set :)
