with ASUS SABERTOOTH X79 - LGA2011 - X79 - 8x DIMM - PCIe 3.0 are you able to 3 way sli gtx 560ti 2gb
also will this be bottlenecked by a 2600k processor at 4.0ghz
thanks in advanced :na:

Why 3 Way? You can, but scaling is not really appealing. You better go for better high end cards...

The Asus Sabretooth is a lga 2011 socket and the i7 2600k is a lga 1155 processor, so they will not work together. The i7 3820, i7 3930k, i7 3960k, and i7 3960x are the only processor currently supported on the x79 platform.

Just grab yourself a GTX 570 like you wanted originally for your graphics card

Lol yes, that's true too. Normal 560 ti's does not support 3-way SLI. Only 560 ti 448 does (if this is what you want) :D . But 560 ti 448 3-Way is still, not worth it :) .

About the processor and Motherboard, they are not compatible my friend, X79 Motherboard does not support LGA 1155 processor such as i7-2600k. The best one in the $300-budget area for a LGA 2011 processor is this:

(The price is around i7-2600k btw, it's also not fully unlocked)

Sorry for my last post, it was a rushed post. And Monsta, would you change your avatar plz? I don't like it really...
