iTunes Match - How it works

I've recently bought a second Mac, my previous set up was that I had all my collection (7600 Songs - 40GB) on my Macbook Pro, which i'd have on me all the time. Now i've got the second Mac i'm considering iTunes Match, so that all my collection is accessible across both devices rather than messing about with syncing apps, iTunes sharing etc.

My question is on how iTunes Matches your music to music on their servers. I've got i'd say 20GB plus of music which I know is on the iTunes Store, but not under what i've got filled under (E.g. Part of a album full of songs). So does iTunes match work on Artist/Song Title or does it also take the Album title into the equation?

And if it does, does this mean it will presume they don't have it and start uploading songs, as I don't want to be uploading 20GB+ of music.

Thanks for the responses in advanced
