So I'm buying a XFX 7870 2GB Double disp version and a ANTEC ONE S3 cabinet.

The cards dimensions are 12.6x6.3x3.9 (inches)

And the cabinet tells
Maximum graphics card length: 10.5”

Can any hard drive bays be removed to extend the length?

I think you can make it work.
Here is a photo with the hard drive cage removed:

It may be possible to mount even with the hard drive cage so long as you don't need to use the top hard drive space.
On other older cases, I have just cut away a bit from the side of the hard drive cage to allow a longer card to fit.

Okay, I'm a total newbie here but the link you sent doesnt have any hard disk cages. So where would one mount his hard disk and a DVD writer?
