So the parts are all currently being shipped and I need wifi and bluetooth. I saw a 2 in 1 wifi bluetooth card from Gigabyte (http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=...) and was wondering if it would work with my motherboard (I have a Sabertooth x79). And also, are there are any other bluetooth/wifi cards that would serve as another potential option?

The bluetooth/wifi card you specified is compatible with your motherboard (nice one BTW) I think the card is perfect for the job.

Its bit weak unit. Get USB wireless adapter, its stronger, faster with dual USB connections that will ensure the strong signal reception.

One, like this one. Best I've had and still have. And I have tried whole bunch of them.


I wouldn't get any PCI wireless card anymore. Get instead USB, it has more power, faster reconnecting times and longer distance coverage.

I have Amped Wireless UA600 and after I got rid off my Linksys PCI card for this, What a difference that is. (I had this one and 2 others ... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...)

No more disconnections, PCI device slows down the boot time too. When I start the PC, type the password, and click on tom's HW shortcut, it is displayed in a second!

With that PCI (had 2 more to try) it started to connect after log in and it took few seconds.

Love it! My wife's iPad has about 6 networks to connect, I have about 40!

Linksys had about dozen.

Also this USB has 2 USB connections, for better strength, as it supply more power.
