This is a right-angle, 24-pin Molex Mini-Fit Jr.™ connector, commonly used as the power supply connector on ATX motherboards. Two rows of twelve pins are broken out two rows of through-hole male headers. See the datasheet below for pin spacing dimensions.
Pair this connector with a standard computer power supply and you can source a number of different voltages (+3.3V, +5V, +12V, -12V, -5V) to your project.[
This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.
Skill Level: Noob - Some basic soldering is required, but it is limited to a just a few pins, basic through-hole soldering, and couple (if any) polarized components. A basic soldering iron is all you should need.

Does anyone know a suitable mouser or digikey part number for this?
Really wish SFE would spill the beans lol I need a bulk order soon and they are below what I need already. I know it's a Molex Mini-Fit Jr. but where can they get them so cheap? Mouser and Digikey both are over $3 a piece at quantity. Something tells me they won't be in a hurry to restock this particular part either.
Depending on how big of a bulk order you need, contact email@example.com. They can help with custom large orders so that you can get your order in a timely fashion and it doesn't totally kill our stock flow.
The pins in this connector are really tight in the power supply's connector. I mean it takes a lot of force to plug or unplug it. At first I was a little concerned that the tab for the clip wasn't double-wide to facilitate clipping to a in a 20-pin power supply, but with it being this tight, the clip is unnecessary. But really, it being this tight makes it pretty unusable.
This connector fits on the atx breakout board, unlike it's straight counterpart.
