Most motherboards want the video card in the first slot closest to the cpu , what you can do is try it anf see , if it works then you can probably keep it that way but again it is not recomended and you may or may not have issues down the road. What is in the way that you cannot fit the card in the first slot and what card do you have.

i have a huge air cooler and wanted to mount it vertical but it would be right on the card its the Thermalright Silver Arrow
