Hi, I need to buy a wireless adapter for my desktop pc. I keep reading that PCI beats USB, but the thing is, my PCI slot is directly next to my video card. My last PCI wireless adapter, which is now awful after overheating issues (a cheap $20 one), obstructs about 1/3 of the gfx card's fan. Another thing is, my desktop is in a corner of the room, hidden away underneath my desk, sitting ~35ft away from the G router, which is in a diff room. I know this causes horrible signal because I tried using another cheap yet working PCI card for testing purposes.
Should I stick to getting another PCI card? If so, will it do anything to my gfx card? Also, any recommendations? (Budget of $40, no need for 802.11n) Thanks.
