Hard drive enclosures

Hello, i'm looking for a decent harddrive enclosure for IDE harddrives, this enclosure must have:

IDE support for 3.5IN HDD's
Work with windows 2000/XP without drivers
support drives as large as 137GB
Have both Firewire and USB 2.0 interfaces (Backwards compatible with 1.1)
If possible, drivers for windows 98SE and compatibly with mac OS 10
Cost no more the $80

I only need the links, but if you have personal experience with one, post it here too.
I am ONLY looking for the enclosure, NOT a externel HDD.

I actually skipped the enclosure all together and just got the adapter here...

But here is a 3.5" USB 2.0 Enclosure for $29

Here's one:

Supports USB and Firewire.      I am guessing there's tons of these things out there.

I have one of these: http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?description=17-145-316&depa=0 - lots of room inside for cooling.

It's more than you're asking for and not USB - BUT I love my firewire drive dock (www.wiebetech.com) - no actual enclosure needed, just attach it to the drive and you have an external firewire drive.  With your ebay bought $5 adapters for 2.5 to 3.5 drives, you can even use it with notebooks.
