    This drive in this enclosure is as good as it gets, IMO.

    All you need is an open SATA port on your motherboard and, using the eSATA cable, your transfer rate is as fast as an internal drive.

    That enclosure also supports transfer over USB.

    Why no SATA?

    I'd still recommend the combo I first posted.
    You can use the USB cable with this PC and when you eventually upgrade your computer, the eSATA will be much faster.
