I just bought a firewire case from newegg.com for this purpose. Cost $40, but the powerbrick part of the adapter is in the middle, not end, of the cord. It also is slient (no fans) and the drive mounts on little rubber feet for shock protection. It's a really nice enclosure. It's a MAcally phr100-af. Good quality. But you can definitely find cheeper ones if need be.


The actual throughput depends on the speed of the drive itself of
course, but they are pretty firm on Firewire outperforming USB.
USB/firewire cases are about USD $10 on Ebay, make sure to get one with
screws that hold the drive down. Some cheapies just have the drive
rattling around inside loose. The ones with optional fans may be good as
well, but mine are just solid aluminum.
