Default What kind of enclosure do I need?

I just took apart my old dell desktop and took out the hard drive. It's a Western Digital WD1600jb. I was wondering what kind of encasement I would need for it so I can wipe it and start using it for extra memory.

Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar SE WD1600JB 160GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache IDE Ultra ATA100 / ATA-6 3.5" Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Thats the deets on the hard drive thanks for the help....

You'll need an enclosure that is:
1) For 3.5" hard drives
2) For IDE hard drives

That's pretty much it.
