Your new gasket has tabs that make it easy to set in place; the tabs hold the position properly on the cylinder head. The gasket also has the rubber coating to establish a tight seal between the cylinder head and the the valve cover, even if there is slight damage or warping. Proper torque for the valve cover bolts is between 50-100 in-lbs., which is about 8 ft-lbs for a maximum.
If you have the gasket properly set, and proper torque on the valve cover bolts, you should not leak.
If you still experience a leak after double checking the gasket and the bolt torque, I would replace the valve cover itself. You will find several at most any salvage yard, and probablly will cost you $10.00 or less for a used valve cover.
I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.
