Frankly I was surprised to not find the header. This is an Acer machine with 
an AMD chipset and an HDMI output. I got it REALLY cheap the last day of the 
local Circuit City's existence ($50 including a 17" LCD monitor. The 4GB of 
RAM alone was worth more than that), so I don't mind having to buy a card.

I'm not looking forward to dealing with ATI video drivers, I've always used 
nVidia, but what the heck.
