Which wireless adapter?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm thinking between these three:

Any comments about them in general? What about the USB vs PCI vs PCI-E?

What it really boils down to is: Do you or do you not want to open your pc case to install one, and if so which free slots do you have. If you choose a PCI-e or USB one, then you could use it on a future PC, because your next motherboard may not have a regular PCI slot.

Opening my case wont be a problem. I'm going to be upgrading a lot, including the motherboard. Which does have a PCI slot. But I guess for long term future-proofing, it's something to think about.
