Yes, it will fit.

Which brand/variant of 6950 are you hitting?
The Asus tripleslots are a little on the large side :-)

Only one? hehe
those are the very beasties I was referring to, a shade under 30Cm

So no, that will not fit in your case without some modding of the drive cage,

*Quote from that link,
What is the maximum length graphics card supported?
The CM Storm Scout is designed with portability in mind. It can accommodate the largest 280GTX or HD 4870 X2 type cards. This includes all GPU 10.5" or 267mm in length or shorter. GPU cards have a maximum clearance for 10.6" or 270mm maximum length inside the Scout**

different card or case, or some modding on the horizon mate :) 
Two of those do look nice though...

Sorry, I just took my side panel off to measure my cards before posting my reply, that brand/variant of 6950 is not going into the case op selected withough some modding,
luckily removing that cage looks easy enough

So therefore would a 27cm / 10.6" card fit inside this case?

Its right on the measurement so I'd say it will be a squeeze-in job,
but thats according to the links, you may find that the drivecage has enough flex to fit it in withouth cutting/removing anything,
if you get that one I would fit the mobo, then see if the card is easily fittable, that way you could return it or start planning a mod to suit

Better yet, look at some of the Rosewill or Antec cases. CM is a dishonest company, which IMHO does not deserve anyone's business, regardless of the product or its quality. HardwareSecrets found that some of their PSUs have liar-labels or claim protections that are missing. Since the government is not interested in pursuing consumer fraud of this sort, your only option is to vote with your dollars.

It should give you .4 inch to spare as this GPU is 10.2 inches long.
