You can, You'd have to jump the green wire to any of the black wires on the PSU so it will power on, you can get adapters for that as well, and even a 24pin adapter that will have break off cable that will plug into the 2nd PSU and it will power on both PSU's with the case power button, though not really needed, I bought such adapter for my server, I run 2x ATX Seasonic 400 watt PSU's just like this.
