I'm using one for my bench power and to power my battery charger. Works great. I think it is even worth getting a new one and not waiting on a dead PC. They are only about $15 and up online.

Mine did not have a power switch so I added one, but you can find them with a switch already on it. I have the OLD AT style that has -12v -5v GND 5V 12V and I installed banana sockets for each. And yes I get 24v across the -12v to the +12v. Newer ATX don't include the -5v and the current is very limited on the -12v.
