Default SATA external drive, connect to PC via USB?

I am currently using an SATA drive and want to upgrade to a larger HDD, but my computer can only hold one hard drive. I don't want to just waste this current drive of mine, so I've been looking for a harddrive enclosure for it. So far, all I can find are enclosures that have SATA-out, as opposed to USB.

Does anyone know a place online that sells an enclosure for a SATA drive, but connects to a computer via USB, not SATA? Does this exist or is it not possible due to some reason I'm not aware of?
