You can try and it might work but most likely you'll have errors.

It's likely that even though your graphics card is not supported for GPU acceleration with After Effects it could be supported for Element 3D.

Refer to this list of supported cards to see if yours is on there:

AE can't recognize AMD cards. Element can.
AE really only uses the GPU to accelerate the obsolete ray-traced renderer. As long as your card video card supports Open GL 2.0, you're good as far as AE is concerned (unless you're using the ray-traced renderer, but I don't know of anybody who does that professionally these days).
