Alienware Graphics Amp with X51 Question

I am looking at getting an graphics amplifier for my X51, so I won't be restricted with size and power requirements. It has that new motherboard (mother and powerboard are once piece without 24-pin) so you can't simply move the whole thing to a new case.

Question is, once I hook it up, and power up with the X51, should it recognize it right away? The driver for that card is already installed. Also, can I just not have anything in the X51 and leave it as an open space for better airflow?
