Just because it's an older standard doesn't mean it won't work. The larger IDE cable may restrict airflow through the system, though.

If you already have an IDE DVD drive it will work fine, if you dont, then there isnt a reason to pick IDE over SATA, infact the opposite is true, sata cables are easier to deal with and in a small HTPC case are much less of a pain to deal with.
