My System Specs

Default

I don't know enclosures well but...

USB3 does 5 Gbit/s
SATA3 does 6 Gbit/s (-1 Gbit/s over USB3)
SATA2 does 3 Gbit/s (-2 Gbit/s over USB3)
Normal HDD does not even fill a SATA2

So unless you are using an SSD in that external enclosure and that you REALLY need that extra 2 Gbit/s, I wouldn't care and stick with a SATA2 USB3.
