I was considering buying a gaming desktop PC that xplane 11 could run enjoyably on. By enjoyably I mean with a framerate above 25fps and a decent/realistic graphics setting.

This is the system:

Ryzen 5 2600x 3.6ghz

MSI Nvidia GTX 1660 6gb

16 gb (2x8) corsair vengance DDR4 3000mhz ram

Is this enough for an enjoyable experience? Thanks.

The system you described is adequate to run X-Plane 11.  With rendering settings at medium to medium-high, it should achieve 25+ FPS.  There are other factors you have not specified: display resolution, type of aircraft etc.  Flying X-Plane’s generic airplanes at single 1080p—no problem.  But with some of the complex payware aircraft and/or at higher resolutions, FPS may get a bit edgy.
