My ship layout is as follows:

Weapon Systems
X4 Advanced Fleet Antiproton Dual Heavy Cannons Mk XII [Dmg]x3 [ACC]

I also have the fleet CrtD which does give a +50% bonus to crit damage but apparently Acc is best for PVP. I also have a set of XI that I purchased from the Exchange and suffice it to say, its cheaper to buy them from the Fleet store. The same goes for any other energy type.

X2 Advanced Fleet Antiproton Turret Mk XII [Dmg]x3 [Acc]
Borg Cutting beam

Borg Set XI - always has done the trick for me.

Neutronium All the Way

Console - Tachyokinetic Converter
Console - Universal - Assimilated Module
Console - Romulan ZPE
Console - Field Generator

Console - Tactical - Antiproton Mag Regulator Mk XI
Console - Tactical - Antiproton Mag Regulator Mk XI

Bridge Officer Layout
Universal Lt Commander (Tactical)

Cannon Scatter Volley 2
Cannon Rapid Fire 2

Universal LT (Science)
Hazard Emitters 1
Science Team 2

Commander Tactical
Tactical Team 1
Attack Pattern Beta 1
Attack Pattern Omega 2
Cannon Rapid Fire 3

LT Tactical
Attack Pattern Delta 1 (I have a purple Doff that increases this but to be honest, am not convinced by it just yet...)

En Engineering
Emergency Power to Weapons 1 (although shields is also a good idea....)

Sub-Space Field Modulator
Batteries of some sort (i.e. Weapon/Engines/Your choice)

Make sure that you RESPEC properly via the STO planner and also go over the Hilbert Guide. Both provide excellent sources of info that will allow you to maximize your DPS output whilst also increasing survivability. Your doffs should complement whatever you build.

Longevity wise it takes pretty much an all out assault from every PVP player to take me out at this point (i.e. 4-5 ships at once) bar of course the infamous Bug ship... that thing sneezes on me and I am dead... lol.
