  1. It should work. What's your psu wattage?
  2. Best answer
    You'll never fit it into a tiny Alienware X51. The card is just too darn big.
  3. You, uhm... you realize that the card is probably thicker than the laptop, right? And that graphics cards in laptops are soldered to the motherboard and can't be replaced anyways?

    That being said, the 290x will work in any computer that has a free pcie slot, room for the card, and a power supply that's got enough oomph to power it.

    x51 is a laptop? GPU in x51 isn't soldered on.
  5. I got it mistaken with one of their laptops - don't bother to pay too much attention to prebuilt models.

    That being said, no need for a necro just for that on a solved question.
