Will Sapphire AMD Radeon R9 270X work in my X51?

I have an alienware X51 R2, with a GTX 645 graphics card in it and I have decided that I want to upgrade the GPU, I've looked around and it seems that the R9 270X is the best card to install, however this is my first time installing a graphics card an I have never bought one before. Could you tell me if this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00FL8H49Q/ref=s9_simh_gw_p147_d0_i1?pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd...
