Wifi components on 1st build ?

I closed my previous thread without asking a vital question - what would it take to make the setup below wifi-enabled?

This is my first build, still open to suggestions

  1. Hello esburmeister;

    If you already have a WiFi router - just a WiFi network adapter.
    You do know that gaming over WiFi can be less than ideal?

    I don't plan to do any gaming on it just yet. I am an engineering student, priorities being Autocad, Excel, Internet

    I'll check out the ASUS - thank you
  4. And, since I'm on a limited budget, another key goal was something open to future upgrades...
