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.

Desktop i5-4440 - ASRock Z77 Extreme4 - EVGA GTX970 - 4x4GB 1600MHz - Samsung 850 EVO 250GB - Be Silent Base 800 - 3TB+1TB+640GB
Laptop i7-3740QM @ 2.7GHz, 2x4GB 1600Mhz, GT640M, OCZ Agility 3 120GB
