The processor is too weak and you want at least 16 GB RAM.

You should also have a dedicated video card with at least 2 GB GRAM.

The iMacs that you have been looking at have not been updated in several years. The CPUs in them are now older-gen CPUs with no more than four threads - woefully inadequate for Premiere Pro these days.

I agree with RjL. You do not want to purchase a tired, old Mac. My opinion: A much better bang for the buck is the Mac Mini and MacBook Pros with the new M1 chip. Premiere is still in beta running natively on the M1, but it's already running well in Rosetta 2.

 

Thanks,
Kevin

The 2 TB HDD should be a fast SSD instead.

Does the current SSD storage level stop a system of these specs from
performing seamlessly in Premiere Pro? Especially the GPU. Will they hold?

If the 256 GB SSD has only the operating system and apps, it may be large enough.

That 2 TB HDD will slow things down, and depending on media and effects used, possibly to a crawl.

To respond to what Kevin stated:

 

Those particular iMacs date from 2017 and early 2019, respectively, and have remained completely unchanged (hardware-wise) since their debuts - and they are still sold brand new even today. In fact, the non-Retina iMac actually used a Kaby Lake (7th Gen)-based dual-core i5 mobile (not even a desktop) CPU. And all 21.5-inch Retina iMacs are stuck on the 8th-Gen Intel CPUs at this present time, while only the 27-inch iMacs received hardware updates fairly recently.

 

Now, as for your new system consideration:

 

The 10th-Gen Intel CPU that's in your new planned configuration is a bit outdated, in light of the new CPU developments from both Intel and AMD. And that planned custom build will only work if you're willing to give up macOS completely and switch to Windows 10. As such, I would hesitate doing so if you're so much into Macs.
