Hello lintfreesweater,

 

Always best to follow the guidance that is written in black and white which in this instance means that the card will not fit.

I'll back up PhillPower2, if the manufacture says the maximum size of the card is 8 inches then don't purchase a card that is 8.27" to put in it.

 

Everything else really doesn't matter since the card will attach to the back of the case, one can assume that the distance from the back of the case to object that would prevent a longer card is a little over eight inches away.

 

Your choices are a different case or different video card.  Option three will not be pleasant and will void at least one warranty.
