I am building a new desktop but I would like wireless (and BT really).

Would a PCI slot card slow my graphics card on PCI?

I've heard that you don't want to use USB as a constant resource.

PS, comp is for gaming.

Your graphics card is PCI-e and is not related to the PCI bus in the classic sense. A PCI-e wireless card will have no ill effect as well, other than taking up another slot.

As for a wireless card, try this one and use the Atheros drivers (Atheros AR5008). This is also a good choice.

For Bluetooth you'll need to get a USB adapter . If your a hardcore online gamer, then you will want a wired connection rather than wireless, since wireless has a higher latency.
