wifi card reccomendations

Hello fellow pc master race members, I am soon to be joining your clique (by that I mean building a pc for gaming/light video editing). I have a question though, do you guys have a recommendation for a WiFi card (can't use wired, to far from router, by which I mean 1 floor above) that is compatible w/ the WiFi from Verizon fios (idk if its n or ac), under $40 (preferably under $10).

Heres the rest of my build, if any advice for it do tell.

    or go powerline if you have decent wiring, far better than wifi..

  2. I suggest getting a power line ethernet adapter to boost the WiFi signal on the 2nd floor , then a good tiny USB adapter to connect to WiFi. I don't know how it affects ping and so on , but i would read more about this if your wifi signal does not reach you or if it is low.

    About your build :
    1) Get a 7200rpm HDD preferably black caviar series.
    2) The PSU you selected is tier 2 quality PSU , i suggest getting corsair HX750 or another 750w Tier one PSU from this list.
