If you're looking for an external drive that is already in an enclosure you should check out OWC decent prices and good service and a wide range of options.
Just saw the bit about moving files. Just make sure whatever disk you get is formatted for Mac. It needs to be OS X Extended, when you get the drive and hook it up run Disk Utility to format it.
To move files the easiest thing is to just use the finder and drag what you want to move over to the new drive. Dragging to a different drive will copy the files so once you're done and know the files are OK on the new drive you will need to delete them from the original drive.
This might be a good time to think about starting some sort of backup program.

I second Frank's recommendation of OWC's external hard drive. I have 6 that I'm using and am very happy with them. Unless you have a Mac with a USB 3 port I'd get one with Firewire connectivity for speed.
