Question External Harddrive Interface

I am buying a external case. I am buying this one because i am not sure what my harddrive plug is.

Newegg.com - Eagle Consus W-Series ET-CSWSIU2-BK 3.5" USB2.0 to IDE + SATA Aluminum External Enclosure - Retail

I know that both of my Harddrives are SATA. But one has the 4 pin power connector and the other has a SATA power connector, how do i know what external case has the right power connector?

This is what one harddrive looks like (SATA with SATA Power, Here's two pictures of it):

The other one looks like this (SATA with 4 Pin Connector, one picture):

Most Harddrives enclosures that I found have support for SATA and only the 4 pin connector, not the SATA power connector. =/

Any Help is Appreciated, Thank you.
