I just made a build for my nephew (from his parents) and they just let me know they also want a set of speakers and a wireless card (or maybe USB plug in receiver?).
I know a bit about hardware components, but I'm totally unfamiliar with speakers and wireless...could you offer me some place to start please? I google too, but I like to also filter my searches through you guys 1st.
Oh, this is for a roughly $750 system (including OS, keyboard, mouse, and monitor). I would imagine they would like to keep speakers under $100 and closer to under $50 if possible.
As for wireless I use USB wilress dongles for almost everything. Do they have G or N? They are simple to use (plug into any open USB slot), easy to set up, don't need a card slot. Lots of brands and prices can range from the mid $20's to $50 unless you buy refurb.
Sorry about slow response...was catching on on threads. The adaptor you chose is N so that's good. However, it's a 150mbps and the modem/router looks like it will support 300mbps. If you are trying to max wireless speed then you need one that does 300mbps.
