Which external casing should I buy for my new Samsung 830 SSD drive to get optimal performance?

Am currently considering:
- Sandberg USB 3.0 Casing
- Delock External Cabinet SATA -> USB 3.0/eSata

Subquestions:
- USB 3.0 vs eSata
- How big performance difference is there between vendors
- Would buying a 'pre-cased' ssd drive like Transcend 18C3 be a better option?

My aim is to increase game load times on my work laptop.

Thanks

Why choke a 6GB drive with 5GB interface. Get a eSATA III.

well, technically it is choking it but .. with a really high end usb3 controller you might get 80% throughput on that 5Gbps .. which is about 500MB/s and not much of a bottleneck. Even fairly mundane usb3 controllers get 60% -- that's still 375MB/s
