From what I can figure out on mine, it looks like it can, but I'll cover up part of the cable management hole on the top and might run into the cable tie downs.

I'm just wondering if anyone has fit a Maximus V Formula or a similar sized board into a Scout before without any issues. I'd really not like to buy a whole new case right now, as otherwise, I'd have to cut something on my budget.

It should, but it won't be easy to work with.

Hm... I'll see how things go. Looks like I'm going to have to do a complete strip out of all cables and figure out where things are going to fit and where they're not. Might have to make my first cuts into this case to make cable management work. thinking.gif

At least it's not a full E-ATX board, but yeah, things are going to be tight.

It would totally buck up my budget.

7000 series cards are nice, but the fact that only xfx and 7970 cards (and the occasional 7850) only have 1 dvi and 1 hdmi its kind of a killer for me. I just don't feel like display port and mini display port are common enough among displays that most people in that budget are going to have, making the need for 2 display port or mini display ports somewhat useless.....

There are cable and adapters for them. Sure it's an adapter, but it's not like you're losing quality or anything like that. Can get them for about $10 on monoprice. I actually had a few laying around my house from my MacBook that worked fine with my 6950. Monoprice does have a whole selection of them to choose from: http://www.monoprice.com/products/subdepartment.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10246

I understand that there are adapters, but they so many cards with only slight performance gains in low to high prices, it just doesn't make much sense in my eyes to have cards that have 2+ display ports on cards other than the 79xx cards that your probably going to have a higher build budget and have monitors with display port already. Thats just been my thought on the 7xxx series cards since they came out.

Price on the 7870 went back up. Had to settle for this.

Cyber Monday is on Monday, November 26, 2012 you could have waited a bit and found a deal somewhere instead on settling
