So I am doing a build a 4770k 3 graphics cards in sli a ship load of fans an AIO and an optical drive I am reaching 1105 watts the psu I have in mind is the AX1200i will I need to run dual psus? I am getting a possible 4th card at a later time as well so it will need to be upgradable and overclockable

Likely not... just get a 1600W PSU.

See how many watts the fourth card takes up. Then add 100 watts to that. That's how many watts you should at least have in a PSU. Just to tell you though, using 4 GPUs in SLi might not give you the full performance of each card.
