Need help with buying an Enclosure

I have this desktop internal HD. How do I shop for an enclosure that would be compatible with it ? If I can go with USB 3.0 that would be preferred over USB 2.0. If you can provide a link for an inexpensive enclosure, that would be great.

Thanks

Any 3.5" enclosure with an internal SATA interface should work. Some will be faster, better cooled, or have better power supplies.

Copy and paste the url below, SD's redirection breaks long newegg urls otherwise.
Code:

If your PC has USB3, you'll want the enclosure to as well. If not, it's still not a bad idea to get USB3. Will you be leaving the drive on all of the time, or just turning it on for short periods of time? If it'll be on all of the time, you'll probably want one with a fan

Something like this [amazon.com] would be perfect if you're not planning on leaving it on all of the time.
