anyone know of a site where you can pick up a nice looking 3.5inch firewire enclosure for $50 or less

Newegg has 41 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.asp?Description=&MinPrice=&MaxPrice=50&OEMMark=-1&Manufactory=0&PropertyCodeValue=538%3A7123&PropertyCodeValue=0&PropertyCodeValue=0&PropertyCodeValue=0&PropertyCodeValue=542%3A7135&PropertyCodeValue=542%3A7133&PropertyCodeValue=542%3A7138&Submit=Property&SubCategory=92).

I use and like the AMS Venus (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16817145657).

Out of the Newegg choices, I can vouch for this one being very nippy in Firewire. I have the same enclosure branded as 'Argosy'. I'm not sure why though but it does run 3~5 degrees C hotter than the Enermax enclosure I also have.

thanks guys for the links, worked like gangbusters. Picked one up for $35. And sold my friend my old 250GB WD drive to put inside of it so I have room to put in a 750GB seagate.
