Well, wifi is not the best choice for gaming,
if you cant get a direct conenction, powerline ethernet may be better.

If wifi is the way to go, then look at what standards your access point supports,
The order of preference would be:

802.11.ac
802.11.n (5ghz)
802.11.n (2ghz)
802.11.a
802.11.g
803.11.b

I'd recommend going for an internal card if its a desktop, over usb.
if going for .n or .ac more antennas, aka spatial streams is better.

Any well known vendor is fine really.

Check out the TP-Link TL-WDN4800
or
TL-WDN4200 N900
for bang for your buck :)
