Default Enclosures?

I've seen single drive enclosures, but, Iam more interested in the advertise towers. These machines that hold three or four hard drives and plug in through firewire to your machine. I have some ide hard drives that i would rather put into that and risk building a new machine.

the machine iam talking about is called LaCie.
here's there website : LaCie - External Hard Drives, Network Hard Drives, RAID, Monitors, DVD, Blu-ray

i5 2400 @ 3.10Ghz | 16GB RAM | 500GB + 1TB | GTX 750Ti
