Will this Lian-Li accessories help in drawing out excess hot air from those expansion card in my casing? I only got a graphics card there, so would like to know if it is worth it to burn the fan so it can directly draw out the hot air of the graphics card when the heat is removed by its own HSF?

The red circle is where the blower would be placed. VF900CU is installed.

I imagine it should make a difference, however small. If you are using a passive-cooled card, it probably would lower temps more than an actively cooled card.

Whats the performance gain? reduce temp by 3-5 degrees? or just 1-2 degrees?

Impossible to say for sure, but I'd guess closer to 5 than 1.

Squirrel cage fan - nice! :)

There's no telling how many degrees it will reduce the temperature. (Not without expensive thermal scanners and lots of calculus hehe.)

IF the air down in that area feels warm chances are it will cool the lower part of the box off a few degrees at minimum.

I think the Zalman will provide better cooling than the Lian Li blower.
