Doesn't matter what model card it is, yes you can use 3x 1440p monitors on it. In games you would probably want to limit the number of screens you use to 1, since gaming performance on 3x 1440p displays on a 1080ti is not going to be good. On one display it will be perfectly good.

I know every 1080ti support even more than 3 display's, but i wanted to check the video inputs on his card to see if he will need adapters or not.
 
If the new monitors have the same inputs as the old 1080P monitors, you can certainly connect them.
GTX1080ti will normally have 3 displayport and one hdmi connection.

What do you hope to accomplish with the upgrade?
Have you considered alternatives?
Perhaps a single large 40" 4k monitor and retain two 1080p units as side monitors.
Perhaps a 49" widescreen like this:

Hi all I only play DCS and occasionally xplane 11 or mfs2020. The card is a gigabyte geforce gtx 1080ti . I have looked at the supper wide screens but can't make my mind up about them , it's that strange warping you get near the edges as you go past something,???
 
It really is best to see a monitor in person if you can.
Wide screen monitors are very good for desktop work.
If they are truly wide like the 49" unit, the curve keeps from having the edges washed out.
One negative for me is the limited height of such units.
If the image quality is tops,you will not have a problem with seeing the edges.
I went from a 40" 4k monitor to a LG 48" OLED TV Image is stunning.
You will need a 3000 series graphics card to get hdmi 2.1 necessary to drive refresh past 60hz.
I found a GTX1080ti able to run FS2020 reasonably well.
The fps was in the 25 range, but that did not seem to be any sort of a problem.
One advantage of a single large monitor is that you can size individual windows as you wish and not have any monitor borders get in the way.

Many thanks guys ... plenty of food for thought
