Apparently Acer has some issues with ATI
From Acer's site:
No video displayed with some add-on PCI-Express video cards.
The APFe and AST670 desktops meet PCI Express (PCIe) standards.
However, ATi has determined that video cards that use some of their "older" Radeon video controllers have a conflict with the video controller on the APFe main board.
Some add-on PCIe video card are not recognized by the system.
NOTE.....If the add-on video card is not recognized, the video signal will still present on the external video port from the main board..
The following video cards have been identified to have a conflict with the APFe
Sapphire X300SE 128MB W/TV NTSC ATX 1024-8C45-0C-SA
Video cards with older Radeon X300SE ASICs
Sapphire X600PRO 128MB VGA+TVO+DVI ATX 1024-2C50-04-SA
