You can't use 3 8600GT's in SLI,you only can use 2.
The only cards that support 3-way SLI are 8800GTX,9800GTX,and GTX 4xxx series.
However,even if you could,I wouldn't have recommended it because 3-way SLI doesn't scale as good as 2-way SLI,so in most games the difference between them isn't much.

^+1, Although don't forget the 8800 Ultra, GTS 250 (you kinda got it covered with the 9800 GTX) GTX 260, GTX 275, GTX 280 and GTX 285. :D 

You can use the third 8600 GTS as a PhysX card.
