An iMac for Davinci Resolve?

I'm looking into buying a new iMac for editing/coloring/etc, but I'm pretty technologically clueless and have trouble wrapping my head around most of the info out there. I want to be able to run Davinci Resolve 12.5 (the free version for now, but eventually I'd like to buy the full version, or maybe Red Giant's Magic Bullet Suite instead) as smoothly as possible, so I wanna make sure the specs for the 27inch iMac I'm looking at is sufficient:

4.0GHz quad-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 4.2GHz
32GB 1867MHz DDR3 SDRAM - four 8GB
1TB Fusion Drive
AMD Radeon R9 M390 with 2GB video memory

Most specifically I haven't a clue about the graphics card, and I wanna make sure there's NOTHING in any of the programs I mentioned above that I find my computer struggling with. As for the rest (processor, memory), am I overcompensating? Could I go with less? I'd love to save a bit of money, but never at the expense of performance.

I have an iMac 5K with every option except 16gig of ram instead of 32gig. I have been using it as my main editor on a project, although I posted a thread about a GPU memory problem it has. https://sites.google.com/site/australianwritingsreview If you have some specific footage you want me to test for you let me know.

Apple Canada currently has a 2017 i5 in the refurbished section, which would save a bit of money, but if I needed to opt for the i7, I would have to buy new.

Does anyone have a recommendation either way? http://myassignmenthelpaustralia.com.au/

The new AMD Radeon R9 M390 with 2GB video memory seems pretty good i think.. https://www.assignment-help-australia.com.au
