PCI-E extension Riser and GPU performance

hi, i recently purchased this entry level GPU:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Asus-Radeon-Graphics-PCI-Express-Dust-proof/dp/B004XANO24/ref=sr_1_13?ie=UTF8&qid=1354554676&sr=8-13

however i found that it wont fit in my PCI - E slot as it must go in 'upside down' and i dont have enough space at the bottom of my case, however, i have worked out that it would fit if the fan faced upwards and i used a pci extension ribbon, like this:

however, i am wondering if this would reduce the gpus performance or cause any other issues?
any help would be greatly apreciated
