You can't "tri-sli" 295s. You can only QUAD sli with 295s. Since it's a dual GPU on a single PCB, having two of them would be considered "quad-sli". Tri-sli is for 3x single GPUs, like 285s.

As for whether or not the 680i would support it, I know it supported old dual gpu cards in quad-sli, I don't see why it wouldn't support 295s...but I wouldn't recommend doing it anyway.

Ya I would upgrade your mobo and cpu before going with a gfx update like that.
