Default Going Tri-SLI Soon...Which Power Supply should I get for my HP BlackBird?

I just ordered my 3rd EVGA GTX 280 FTW Edition Graphics card for my Tri-SLI setup. Now with using an HP BlackBird 002 I must be very selective on buying the right power supply unit. Here's the layout of my current 1100 Watt PSU from Top Power. It's powering only two of the 280's right now. I can't see how I would even be able to use this power supply for a Tri-SLI setup. With the new power supply...I want each cable to be detachable like my current one and would prefer 12-volt rails to each molex vs having them share the whole 12-volts. So what power supply out there would some of you recommend?

Current PSU Specs:
Case: HP Blackbird 002
PSU: Topower 1500W
Mobo: ASUS Striker Extreme II 790i Ultra
CPU: Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9770 Quad 3.8GHz LCi

HDD: 3 X 150GB WD Raptor-X
HDD: 1 - 500GB Seagate Barracuda

DVD: 2 X Ultra Slim 20X IDE DVD/CD Writer
SPU: Creative X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty PCI-Express
LG Super Multi Blu-ray RW/HDDVD: GGW-H20L
