Default external hard drive

Hi all. So I'm not gonna lie, I know a little bit about technology but am by no means an expert. I was wondering about an External hard drive.

I've talked to some and been recommended to get an internal hard drive with an external enclosure.

So I was thinking of something like this for a case

Amazon.com: Kingwin KH-350U-BK - Storage enclosure - IDE - Hi-Speed USB - black: Electronics

and something like this for a hard drive

Amazon.com: Western Digital WD5000KSRTL Caviar 500 GB SATA Hard Drive: Electronics

If you folks can recommend any internal hard drives/cases, I'd really appreciate it. I'm looking for a hard drive upwards of 500GB, preferably closer to 1 TB. Big thing for me is reliability and longevity (along with cheapness)

Thanks for any help
