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

And, since I'm on a limited budget, another key goal was something open to future upgrades...

.. once again, g-unit1111 has been a huge help
