    It depends on the case, You will have to check the dimensions and see if you can still fit other items

    I don't think both the soundcard and riser cable will fit, I've looked into the same case before and also have a PCIE soundcard. That is the sad part about risers - you do lose your PCI slots. You may be able put the soundcard at the motherboards very topmost PCI slot depending on how tall the GPU is vertically....

    Yeah, there are issues. I have a motherboard with 2 PCIe X1 slots but there is an older PCI slot between them, little difficult using Add-in cards that don't have sufficient cooling space between them.

    This picture gives an idea of how close the GPU is to the motherboard when vertical mounted. I've circled the top most PCI slot where potentially the sound card could go above the GPU but it would depend on how tall your GPU is.
