Default Sound and video card instal questions.

Alright. I just FINALLY got all my parts delivered today. and i thought I could finish assembly in 1 hour. however, I was wrong. 3 hours later and im not even half way done.

Im getting screwed by this sound card mostly.

I instal it, put it in the socket, but when i put the mobo into the case, a bit of the card pops up on one side just so i can barely see the little golden connecting strips thing on the one side. Can this greatly effect my audio quality? Can it affect it at all? same thing happens with the vid card. However, The vid card when it pops up u cant see any of the connecter things, u can just push it in a tad bit more.

Please help someone. this is extremely frusturating..

heres a pick i made of the aud card..
