I have the same case. Looking at it right now with the side panel open.

That video card will not fit vertically in that case. The 500D only accepts a two slot wide video card in the vertical mount position.

That video card even thought it has a two slot I/O plate has a very large/wide cooler so the card will take up three slots width. Fans and shroud would be up against the glass side panel.

Only way that video card will work vertically in that case is to put a water block on it and water cool it in a custom loop. (which is what I suspect Corsair intended with this case)

Video card will work and fit fine in the normal horizontal mounting.

Case should provide sufficient airflow.
