I got this board BIOSTAR TForce TA790GX A3+ AM3 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

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
2

PCI Slots
2



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

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.
