Top is a IDE connector and bottom is SATA.
Sata has a much faster transfer rate then IDE.
SATA also has larger capacity hard drives now up to 2 TB in capacity.
The use of a external enclosure would work as long as the internal connector is right for the HD and the link to system is USB or Esata depending on what you have on your syste, Personally I would do USB as it seems to be mostly on every system now.

If it is a ide drive AND you have a ide port in the computer, you would need a conversion cable.
If it is a ide drive and you have no ide ports, you would still need a conversion cable.
The best scenario is a 2.5 inch external case with a USB connection.
You can then use it as a backup and move it to other computers.
