    God no - you want a computer that's worth using, don't use anything IDE in it.
    The difference from IDE to Sata2 is stonking. Use it, you can pick up the drives from ebay cheap enough or any of the decent suppliers do them. Make sure it's 7200RPM sata2 or 3 hard drive if you really must have a hard drive, or if you really want to see what difference a modern PC is, grab a solid state drive.
