You shouldn't need to cut anything.
Antec 300 - Maximum video card size: 11.5 in/29.2 cm (Note: some video cards may block access to the adjacent hard drive bay)

The Spire case is even bigger.

I believe that some cutting must be done since the 5970 is 30,9cm long...

My bad,
holy crap that's a big card, I thought 11.5" was as big as they got.
The spire looks to be a much deeper case but there's no mention of card length.

lol - my baby coolermaster 340 minitower would take it as it has no drive bays in front of the graphics slot.

Of course,
The three hundred would be a better choice as it has more cooling potential (3 x 120mm + 1 x 140mm max).
You should be able to remove the lower cage instead of cutting it.
