Best wifi USB adapter for a budget gaming build

Hi I'm looking for the best wifi usb adapter for a budget gaming build that I'm working on. I'm looking for something in the price range of 1-20 dollars preferably from amazon. I want to get a usb adapter rather than a pci adapter because I want to have the option to add another ati 6870 in crossfire later on (also the reason for the over kill psu) and it looks like my motherboard only has two pci slots.

here are my components.
