    Sure. What you're after is an external enclosure. It sounds like you had a desktop, so you'll need a 3.5" enclosure, either SATA or ATA, depending what interface your drives used.

    However, the clicking sound is likely a symptom of drive failure, so I think your system drive is toast. Worth a shot, though.
