Best wireless adapter for gaming?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Not sure if this is in the right place but need a wireless adapter. I won't be getting it soon I don't think, but want to have an idea of what I should get. I have PCIe x16, PCIex1, and PCI slots available so any of those are fine.

Its not going to matter if its pci-e or pci, but you will be best trying to get a pci-e x1 if you can place it above the GPU so that it doesn't effect the gpus air intake.

I would recommend going for power-line adapters rather than wireless, its am most as good as been plugged in to the router via Ethernet.

I currently am using a wired connection, but the cord is going from the upstairs bedroom, down to the dining room where my PC is. I would like to have it in my room instead and stop tripping over the wire.

Did you no read my post at all. - Powerline networking will use the existing cableing for your 110/240 electrics as a carrier for ethernet. There will be no ethernet cable between you and the router.

Okay cool, I look into it. Will it be good for gaming? I want the connection to be about as strong as a wired connection.
