Should be fine, but you'll probably run out of hard drive space pretty quick.

If you are on Windows and switching to Mac for Reaper, don't, Reaper runs better, themes better, has better media browser etc etc etc on Windows, stay there if you want pound for pound, only buy the iMac if you have specific MacOS needs, I love my iMac/MBP/Mac Pro but Windows is simply better for Reaper.
