Hey everyone, am building my first pc and have gotten everything but my internet solution done.

My build is/will be:

Case: Cooler Master Haf-932 Black
CPU: i7 950
Fan: Prolimatech megahalems + fans
Motherboard: Asus P6X58-E
Memory: Kingston Hyper X 6gb
Video Card: Graphics card (at least a 6870)
Power Supply: Corsair hx 750
Hard Drive: Western Digital 7200 RPM 1TB 64MB
Optical Drive: Asus Black 24x DVD/CD

I think that I will have to use a PCIE card, but I'm not sure which one to use. really I'm relatively lost as to networking period. What would you guys recommend as far as a wireless solution? PCIE card, usb drive, powerline?


thank you in advance

USB no.
Powerline -- not in a month of Sundays.
PCIe it is, then.

Brandwise -- choice is Netgear/D-Link/Linksys if you value after sales service -- any old brand otherwise as all use a small pool of chipset makers so performance is likely to be similar.
