It connects via Thunderbolt 3, so unless your Acer Aspire has a Thunderbolt 3 port, then no it wont.
I will also add, each OEM may or may not have their UEFI setup to allow an outside graphics setup also. So you would have to contact your laptop maker for that info.

The Omen Accelerator uses a Thunderbolt connection to connect the video card to high speed requirements of PCIe. The HDMI port on the Accelerator then connects to your monitor, not the computer.
Your Aspire's specs don't have this port. You would need an alternative solution to connect an external video card like this or this. The alternative is doable, but not practical. Your laptop would not be portable anymore.
Personally, If I had to tear my laptop apart just to connect an external video card, I might as well save up and build my own desktop.
Take a look at this article that explains external video cards and DIY in more detail...
An OEM refers to the brand or manufacturer of the PC like HP, Dell, Acer, etc.
Each OEM sets up their systems UEFI differently.
Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) is the new type of bios that computers use now for Windows 8 and 10. But technically its not called bios anymore, its called UEFI.
