NEED HELP!! on picking a motherboard

Jello everyone I need some assistance in picking the motherboard going into my new rig I will be using a r9 290x oc windforce for graphics card and and i5-4690k. I want WiFi and Bluetooth compatibility for controllers and being iam going to be moving my comp around from a hardwire when I'm at school I have narrowed it down to 2 options but am open to suggestions.

More about picking motherboard
  1. You can get the maximus hero from asus and get the wifi adpater separately? That way you get quality and what you need
  2. But I thought integrated WiFi/Bluetooth cards were a 100 times better /more reliable that just getting a card
  3. I don't know the stats, but I'd say go for the hero, then get a adapter
  4. Best answer

    I suggest the Asus motherbaord because they are generally a more trusted brand than MSI. Maybe you could get a PCIE wifi card for wifi, thats what I do.
