I need the tower to have wireless capability, so I was looking at wireless N PCI adapters, but I am finding it hard to find any reviews/comparisons of different cards - I would really appreciate any advice on what wireless card would be the best for gaming (preferably under £50), and any general tips on the build itself :) 

Thanks for the advice! :)

So I assume you have a Wireless N Router?

Yes I have a Virgin Media Super Hub which has wireless N and G capabilities as far as I can tell
