Will this wireless card give me any trouble for wireless gaming? (mainly MMOs)

Reviews on Newegg and Amazon are mixed but seem generally positive. Would anyone recommend something better?

    Most of the time the Wifi isn't the issue, it is the interference around the base station (router) or the connection itself to the Internet that is the issue. For example someone buys a router and Wifi because it can do 'speeds up to 300Mbps' they take it hope plug it in and it still as 'slow as it was before'. What they mean is the Internet didn't "speed up" because they got faster wifi.

    Second to that (as I mentioned) is people living in building with either very thick materials (brick walls, steel girders, etc.) or alot of neighbors and just 'set it up' without making any changes and get frustrated because "Wifi is broke". What they mean is they didn't stop, read the F manual (RTFM), and properly 'set it up' so A) it isn't interfering where the router is and where they want to 'sit' with a solid brick wall / another whole floor to the house in the way B) that every neighbor did the same thing and are just all broadcasting on the same couple channels, instead of switching channels (like fine tuning a radio broadcast) to a 'uncluttered' channel.
