The dollar is supposed to be equivelent to x grains of gold according to the Constitution

Where in the Consitution does it say this. The Constution, in Art 1 Sec 8, gives Congress the power to:

"To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof and of foreign Coin, and fix the standards of Weights and Measures".

I can find nothing fixing the number of dollars to the grain of gold, or any other metal. (Silver was also used for coins)

This is what I was thinking of when I wrote what I did - The Coinage Act of 1792: Congress defined the dollar as being 371.25 grains of silver. It then regulated the value of gold coins at 24.75 grains. This means you could exchange 15 grains of silver for every grain of gold.

Nevertheless, the Constitution didn't give Congress the power to delegate its authority to define the dollar and regulate its value to a third party bank otherwise known as the Federal Reserve.

Well, you're right about that. In fact, if you've ever read any of the Founding Father's writings on this subject, the concept of a central bank was hated and feared as being inherently tyrannical in nature.

I love this stuff. For anyone still skeptical that the gun-control advocates intend to gain their ends through incrementalism, this is a perfect example. The one stipulation for passing this legislation was that this information be destroyed. Now all of a sudden it's negotiable. The answer is a resounding "no."
