dont you roll your eyes at me. I didnt ask for you to do that

Anyways I want to dual psu becuase than the 350W psu that I got in room somewhere. I can use that just for the video card becuase the video card takes a floppy power connection. Than my system can have some watts. SO at the end I would have 2x 350W psus runing

Why don't you just buy a 400W-450W PSU? The X1600 doesn't use that much power, and your whole system doesn't need TWO PSU's. I mean, sure...if you have the money to spend on your power bill, then go ahead. Also, you don't need two PSU's anyways, no one does.
