What would you guys suggest?

a USB wireless adaptor (please give me suggestions)

or a NIC card like this

Are they both going to have the same speed?

Im about 25-30 feet from my router, through 1 wall. I was also thinking on getting one of those adapters you can plug into your wall to get internet connection, but they can be expensive.

Im going to need somewhat fast connection for gaming and regular internet use

Personally i think PCI-E X1 is better than usb for NICs as you will have a lower chance of breaking it, you don't have to take it out when you are moving your desktop, it won't hog a USB port,

Those adapters cost more than NICs but are usually better-
