Laptops wifi adapter to new gaming rig?

So when I picked apart my laptop I took the wifi adapter from it, along with some other stuff.

My question is, could I use this for my new gaming rig that I just built?
And would it be sufficient enough.
Here are the two.

  2. I don't think the motherboard comes with a miniPCIe slot.

    Where would you plug in the card?
  3. Thanks for the input guys.
    Initially I was gonna get an aftermarket years ink but shimmed it out for now.

    Looks like it's not gonna work. Now the question is this..

    Would a USB wifi adapter or a PCI wifi adapter be better?
