Well i am moving my desktop upstairs and i need a wireless adapter, will any wireless adapter card be good for me to access the internet and play heavy games like it would if i was connected to my main router down stairs? or do i need to get a good adapter for my gaming. im not sure if a wireless usb adapter or wireless adapter card is better. I just dont want to be slowed down when my desktop will be upstairs. Please help!!! any suggestion on specific adapters to get is welcome.

It depends on the type of router you have. If you only have a G router it would be faster to use a network cable; however, should you have a N router and a good signal you should not see a difference.

I prefer a wireless card and if you have a 1x PCIe slot available try this one
