1080ti are way too much dosh for me to spend out on a graphics card, actually i could buy 2 1080's for the price of a single TI.

I'd still choose a 1080ti.
Waaaaaaaay less hassle. Especially since Nvidia are having SLI issues atm in there drivers.
Death is just another path, one that we all must take.
The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back,
And all turns to silver glass, and then you see it...
White shores, and beyond,
A far green country under a swift sunrise.

NVidia triple screen handling is very similar to eyefinity for everyday desktop use. I use a 1060 for 3x1080 24" screens (I don't game). I previously had an eyefinity setup and there's hardly any difference. Depending on your monitors and card, you might need some dp to dvi adapters - I use 2 - they are the same sapphire active dp adapters that I used for the eyefinity setup. Apparently you can use passive ones as well, but I've not tested this.

What games are you playing? A 1080 is enough for 1080p surround, but it's cutting it close in certain titles. Unless your screens are Gsync compatible, Vega might be another option. Waiting for it could pay off. Or it could be a disappointment and you could still buy a GTX 1080. Buy the most powerful single GPU you can afford. If you can't run every game at 60 FPS with high settings, turn settings down until you can. It sucks but that's the compromise you decide to make running that high of a resolution. For instance, I'd rather run 1440p/90FPS with settings lowered than 1080p/144FPS and settings cranked. And I'd definitely prefer it to 4k/60FPS with loads of settings turned down. That's my compromise.
