Could you please assist, I preparing to setup ACS 5.0 and integrate it with an external AD database. Would i need to make any configurations on the AD servers itself, and what settings do i need, if any?

You don't need to do any changes on AD. Just make sure whatever admin credentials you are using on ACS to integrate with AD should have privileges to add computer on the domain.

Joining ACS to an AD Domain

ACS 5.1 has to be configured with a valid NTP server for time synchronization, preferably from where the domain controller is syncing its time. Another one is a valid DNS server which can resolve internal names.

Both of them will be configured from the CLI:

ip name-server

Ntp server
