I got this board BIOSTAR TForce TA790GX A3+ AM3 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

I have a 5770 in the main pci-e slot and i'd like to keep the pci e slot open incase crossfire somewhere down the line.
I bought a usb wireless adapter at walmart they didn't have any pci slot ones so this was the only option, its alright but it looses connection pretty often because of where i have to plug it in at my girlfriends leg ends up bumping it and lose connection pretty often... i was wondering what would be a decent built in wifi card that i could put on this motherboard.

newegg says it has
Expansion Slots

PCI Express 2.0 x16
2 x PCI Express 2.0 x16 (single x16 or dual x8)

PCI Express x1

PCI Slots

so im really trying to figure out what card would be comptabile heres one im looking at.. btw i use wireless g and eventually possibly n but not really that big of a deal if it doesn't do n and this is a win 7 64bit cpu im running it on.
i'm looking for something under the 30 dollar range..
I dont use wep which i know is probably stupid but ya I don't really want to slow down my wireless by encrypting it.. so maybe that makes this cheaper? lol

sorry for bothering with such a dumb question

Thanks, Cole

I got this one

You can stick this in the second pci-e x1 slot and it should be short enough that your graphics card can still breathe. It works great, no problems here. I don't have experience with the other two so I'm not sure about those.
