I have a half-mini PCI-E WiFi card (RTL8192E to be exact), which has 2 small aerial pins plugged into it. Can I use this without any aerials in a new PC build so I don't have to buy a new WiFi card? If it will work, would the signal be strong enough to reach to a router which is downstairs, pretty much directly below me?

Thanks,
--Mark

Most of these cards have built-in antennas, but provide external antenna leads so you can install better or high-gain ones for better distance and performance.
