Best wireless pci card for win7

Hey,
So i've been tryign to figure out why the new computer I've built is freezing up randomly during operation. So far I've: Flashed an updated bios version, Run Memtest86+, and have been systematically uninstalling hardware. I think i've found the though, and it's the Linksys Wireless-G PCI adapter (WMP54G).

Once i removed this piece of hardware, the issue vanished. I looked online for some information and i found that the Ralink chipset Linksys uses has driver issues with 64bit windows 7 at 4gb+ ram.

So, what i basically want to know is, is there a good pci wireless adapter for 64bit windows that won't suck?

And no, i can't use an Ethernet cable, I split the internet with my neighbors (apartment) and i'm the one w/o the router.

Thanks!

    I have a 'Gigabyte GN-WP01GS PCI WLAN Card(Turbo)' I think it came w/ my mobo if I remember correctly.

    I've used it for a few other systems i've built w/ friends and it works well. Win7 x64. I have 4 gb of ram, my friend has 12. No Flaws
