Default moving a card in the PCI slots

I have a sound card that is in the middle of my 5 pci slots:

1. Wireless card
2. empty
3. Sound Card
4. empty
5. empty

I would like to move my sound card up one into the empty slot.....will that effect anything like reinstalling the card or anything like that or can i just do it. ( yes the computer needs to be off im not retarded ) ; )

I think you can just do it. But im not positive. Since it is already installed, you dont really need to reinstall it. It is just moving it somewhere else. But once again, i am no 100% sure.
