Short answer, doesnt work.
You need at least one nVidia GPU powered card.
The cheapest and fastest internal solution today :
Go to eBay and buy a EVGA GTX 285 and a GT 120 from the Apple store.
Thats what i have and its running perfect.
Pros : Price, reliability, noise
Cons : No warranty, very poor performance on the GT120 for everything else.
If money is not a problem, buy yourself the Quadro 4000 and keep the ATI for the UI and other apps.
Perfect solution : Buy an extendar, load it with Quadro 4800s and add a Quadro 4000 as your primary card.

Please refer to the excellent config guide :

A slice of color...

DaVinci 7.1 OSX 10.6.6
Dual Xeon 2,4 RAM 24 GB
RAID0 8TB eSata 6TB
GTX 285 / GT 120
