iMac OK for After Effects?

I've been using After Effects on my trusty Mac Pro (Mid-2010) for a decade now, and it's still serving me well.  However, with some of my music recording software, I'm bumping up against the fact that my OS (High Sierra) is too old to support some of the newer applications, so I'm thinking it might be high time to get a new Mac.

 

But I was astonished at how much Mac wants for a new Mac Pro. I don't have $5 or $6000 to spend on a new Mac Pro, so my question is, is a new $1299 to $1499 iMac (not the $4999 iMac Pro version), capable of providing a good After Effects and Premiere experience?   

 

How might it compare with what I'm used to on my aging Mac Pro?   If it's not likely to be an improvement, I may just upgrade my graphics card for $200 and upgrade to Mojave OS.

 

Thanks!

I initially need to check the system requirements of After Effects.
