I believe it only supports 2-way SLI. From what I've been reading. I would suggest you type in the name of the board and "Tri-SLI" to make sure.

Edit: If you do want Tri-SLI, this might be decent:

But you said you just wanted to know if that board supports it.

Good luck!

I would avoid non-reference boards like that at all costs. That MSI and the Asus Nvidia boards are plagued with bugs that Nvidia can't help them fix because they are not reference boards. I'd get either a EVGA, XFX or Zotac 780i board since they are all reference boards.

I believe that 3rd PCI-E slot is meant for an Aegis Physx Card or some other type of graphics expansion card...and not really a GPU.

The 680i's have a 3rd slot as well...though they do not support the 3-way SLI either.

If you want 3 way - I think you have to get a 780i or 790i.

The 680i fully supports 3-way SLI, you just have to buy a 3-way SLI bridge.
