Ok so i just built my first computer based off of the i7 950 and the Asus P6T Deluxe Mobo, but I'm still waiting on the processor. We already have a router and the wireless network is up and running. Sorry if this is a completely ridiculous question, but do i need to install some kind of card to be able to connect to that network or is that somehow pre-installed on the motherboard somewhere? Or should i just skip it altogether and simply use an Ethernet cable?

If I do need to get something what would be the best method? This is a gaming rig so it does need to be fast.

Is this a viable option, is there something better, or do i just need something different?

I do have a Linksys PCI adapter card and little "SRX Speed and Range Expansion" tower from an older computer as well, but we've had it for around five years so an upgrade would be just fine.

Best solution

If you have a PCIe 1x slot available, this would be a great choise
