How would I connect this to the internet?

Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory

Monitor: ViewSonic VX2252MH 60Hz 21.5" Monitor

Would I have to directly connect the case to the internet through a router?
Would I have to get some kind of wireless card to connect the PC to the internet without plugging it into anything?
Does my motherboard change anything, here :o?

Please help :)

    You could skip the router and plug the ethernet jack on the computer directly into a cable/DSL modem. But putting the router in between is usually a better plan.

    Either a plug in PCI card or a USB adapter

    The above is true for most motherboards you can buy today.
  3. What about my Gigabyte GA-H97-D3H ATX LGA1150 Motherboard, Does it come with any of that included?

    Can anyone recommend me a good wireless card if I need one?


    M.2 onboard connector (up to 10gb/s) so It is fine right?
  4. the mother board come with an on-board Gigabyte LAN which you can use to connect to the router via network cable.
  5. Would it have to be a specific network cable? :)
  6. Best answer
    A regular CAT5 or CAT6 network cable. Either one will work.
  7. So the "cat5 patch cable utp" that I found will work nicely :)? Thank you for your help!!
