Which 1000w psu is it? If it's high quality then it should handle tri-sli.

if you looked at his signature you would notice that it says "Cool Master Silent Pro Gold 1000W"

just sayin.

I dont see why it wouldnt be able to handle a tri-sli setup.

I think if this is just for maxing Skyrim...you might be going a little overboard. I'd just stick with 2x580s for SLI and if that for some ungodly reason cant max it... get another then, plus they'll be cheaper
