I'm tempted - I'm just starting to make my own board from a computer power supply, I've stripped off the connectors, fastening the PSU to the board (an old kitchen door) and fastened a couple of connector blocks with some of the leads coming out of the PSU.

Next stage for me is to connect up the rest of the wires and then decide what to plug onto them! One idea is a few PWM controllers, one for each siding for the big layout with 3 running tracks and a number of sidings. I'm not sure yet.
