I'd like to know a pc build that can run Skyrim on ultra settings at 60fps , fully-modded and with an enb enabled. I also want it to be able to run Flight Simulator 2020 on ultra settings, as close to 60fps when outside of the cock-pit view. I am going to be playing on a 1080p 60hz tv. I want to buy this PC pre-built or from a custom-builder website. Can you help me?

You loaded? Going to be pricey to get that level of performance out of a pre-built.

Both of those are CPU intense games (FlightSim more so then a modded Skyrim), only saving grace is your desired framerate and resolution is lower, so graphics won't be so bad. Though I still recommend a decent amount of VRAM for Skyrim mods.

Any particular desires when it comes to the size, color, and features you want in a desktop? Max spending limits? North America or other?

Based on the latest blind round up of builders by LinusTechTips. CyberPowerPC offers the best price/options/customer service.

Something like one of there i9-10900k with an RTX3070 might be what you need. Choose an NVMe storage option as large as you think you will need. Probably go for a 2x16GB kit of DDR4 3000 or 3200Mhz. Maybe bump up the water cooler to a 240mm radiator.
