If you could recommend any better options i would be grateful.

I would go with the cheaper TP-Link card. Either one should get the job done okay, but search up reviews on anything you're going to buy to make sure it doesn't have any nasty quirks or bugs and won't die anytime soon. I order cheap ones for customers in custom builds and haven't run into any issues so far.

It's not in your list but if you can find this adapter, it's a solid preformer for me.

How about this?

It seems to be very popular as well as cheap, but i'm a bit apprehensive about USB adapters.

Go PCI whenever available. More reliable and runs cooler, IMO. I have the TP Link card you listed and it has been flawless. I am using it in my HTPC with Win7 32 bit. Great card for the last 6 months or so. Never dropped connection.
