building a PC for the sake of the mods

Content of the article: "building a PC for the sake of the mods"

Hey y'all, i decided to upgrade my gaming laptop to a gaming pc, and as far as i can tell, skyrim is the most demanding thing im planning on running.

the problem is, i have no idea what i need in terms of specs for a pc that im planning on loading up with mods.

does anyone have advice for what my minimum requirements ought to be, especially given that i seem to be inching ever closer to a "skyrim of theseus" situation lol

EDIT: fwiw, here is my current load order, just to give an idea (im hoping to get more and also i did break something so its not ehhhh 100% functional atm, but that's a different problem):
