If you don’t want the latest Mac, consider an Apple refurb; they sell one- and two-year-old models at pretty good prices…. I got a 2014 quad-core Retina iMac with a fairly fast graphics card for around $1500.
From what I’ve been able to ascertain the only thing that matters anymore is the speed of the graphics card and the amount of memory you can stuff in. Just make sure that your software and the graphics card play together.
