hi, i'm buying the Asus G73JH laptop mostly for gaming and they give me a choice of wifi cards that i can get. basically i'm not sure if there is a difference, and if there is a difference what is it? does it mean that i can now get the full reception for my dsl?

here are the choices, they might be repetitive because i just copied and pasted everything, details and all,

1. Built-in 802.11a/g/n WiFi Card, FREE
2. Built-in 802.11 Wireless A/B/G/N - Stock Wireless Card, FREE
3. Built-in Intel® Centrino® Advanced-N 6200 Wireless Card, AN EXTRA $35
4. Intel® Advanced-N 6200 - 802.11A/B/G/N Wireless LAN Module, AN EXTRA $35,

I think that 1 and 2 are the same and 3 and 4 are the same, but i have no idea.

Thanks.

For gaming, it would have to be N - the latest technology - and as #4 is the more versatile, go for that one.

It's capable of handling Wireless B, G and N so even if you don't have N at the moment, it future proofs you.
