Recover Files from an partially corrupt hard drive

My Wife has a 3 year old Intel Imac who's hard drive was on its way out. She took it to a local Tech and had the hard drive replaced. We now have the old drive and she would like to recover some Photoshop files that are still on it. Assuming its not completely dead, would we be able to purchase an external enclosure and use it to plug it into the mac? If this was a windows PC i would be more on my game but I'm not familiar with OSX and how the drives are partitioned . We basically hope to drill down to the specific folder and recover the old actions she had configured. What type of enclosure should we buy and will this even work?
