I'm looking for a wireless card that can detect the access point from within my house. I have a Dell Inspiron 530s, geek squad told me that since it's a "slimmer" version, I would have to use a USB so it can be compatible with my PC .. Is there any card i can buy that is compatible with my PC ?

There are relatively few wireless cards for desktops, partly because the USB ones work just as well. Are you trying to save a USB slot?

In any case, while your local store may not carry a pci wireless card, Newegg has many: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E...

Unless there is some reason you don't want to use a USB wireless adapter, I would recommend this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
It has proven very good at in-house reception on several builds I've done. Plus, it has an extension cable so you can locate the unit in the best line of signal reception.
