There really isn't anything in that size range. Most of the cases with a horizontal motherboard tray are Mini-ITX. You'll be better of getting a normal case.

Are my gpu's going to need support so they don't sag? or is the backplate they come with enough?

They won't sag. GPU sag is a pretty rare problem most of the time. Only very large GPUs without backplates sag.

Are you positive there's no cases that would support vertical mobos? i've always wanted my build to be vertical. But i guess i can get over it.

none that I know of. Most of those cases are for HTPCs and are tiny.
