Hello there tom's hardware peeps,

I have recently decided to upgrade from my 7 year old crappy pc to a relatively good gaming pc. its just this is going in my room and my modem is in the lounge. it is a wireless modem but here are my specs.

CPU: Intel i5 2500k
GPU: GeForce GTX560 Ti
CASE: Thermaltake Chaser MK-I Full Tower
HDD: 1TB Western Digital Caviar Black
MOTHERBOARD: ASUS P8z77-V with built in WI-FI
POWER SUPPLY: Corsair Tx750
RAM/MEMORY: Corsair Vengeance Blue 16GB(4x4GB) Dual Channel DDR3
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OEM
Keyboard: Razer Blackwidow Ultimate Backlit Mechanical Keyboard
Mouse: Razer Deathadder Left Hand edition
Monitor: ASUS VE228H 21.5inch

I was just wondering if the built in WI-FI on the ASUS P8Z77-V was any good. it is to be used for gaming but if not can someone recomend a VERY GOOD wireless adapter.

More about : asus p8z77

It should be good enough I suggest you give it a try before spending money on another card.

Try it for sure, I tried it few days ago on - V Pro version and it worked OK, better than the Linksys PCI adapter, but didn't pick up as many connections near by as my USB adapter.

The USB adapter has more power, faster reconnecting times and longer distance coverage.

I have Amped Wireless UA600 and after I got rid off my Linksys PCI card for this, What a difference that is. (I had this one

No more disconnections, PCI device slows down the boot time too. When I start the PC, type the password, and click on tom's HW shortcut, it is displayed in a second!

With that PCI (had 2 more to try) it started to connect after log in and it took few seconds.

Love it! My wife's iPad has about 6 networks to connect, I have about 40!

Linksys had about dozen.

Also this USB has 2 USB connections, for better strength, as it supply more power.

I recently did a build with a p8z77-v, and used the wifi-go until I got it situated where my ethernet cable is. Overall, it seemed decent, but I can't really judge as I haven't done any gaming on the wireless.
