I am not from Laminar Research or XForcePC; just a flight simmer from down under.
Because you want to spend US dollars I assume you live in the USA.
Have a look at the following link regarding X-Plane issues from Michael Brown found at https://www.youtube.com/user/col2mab/videos Michael operates a company called XForcePC that specialises in building PCs for flight simulation and specialises in PCs for X-Plane. The link and contact details for XForcePC can be found at https://xforcepc.com/flight-simulation-systems Michael is quite open at any time to discuss your needs. They will build and "tune-up" or configure a PC that suits your needs and budget.
This company I understand operates in the same town as Laminar Research and is recommended by Laminar Research as the only supplier of PCs in the USA suitable for X-Plane.
Good luck with your purchase.
