You cant add more than 1 PSU in a computer. I don't know where you heard this from but it's incorrect. You simply have to switch out your 1 old PSU and put in a new powerful PSU that has enough power to supply your parts.

...... when the stuff gets old your just gonna replace them anyway..... technology is always advancing soon that stuff is gonna get out dated and your gonna have to trash them. And besides there isnt really a point to getting 4 if you only need one.

You can have more than PSU in a PC, there are supplementary GPU PSU's and if you have a look on google you can find switcher boxes that allow two or more PSU's to be started at the same time so they can all run in the same PC at the same time.
