i was wondering which wireless adapter was best:

a TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 PCI Express x1 Wireless N Dual Band Adapter
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

OR

ASUS PCE-N15 PCI Express 300/300Mbps Transfer/Receive Rate Wireless Adapter
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

OR

Rosewill RNX-N250PCe (RNWD-11005) Wireless Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g/n PCI Express 300/300Mbps Transfer/Receive Rate 2T2R 64-bit/128-bit WEP, TKIP, and AES WPA, WPA2

i have a ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard and its going to be used for gaming. Any information would be very helpful! Thank you!

Actually they are not all the same, the TP-Link card is Dual Band the other two are not. Of course this is only a bonus if you have a Dual Band Router/AP.

Hi :) 

I was talking about International standards and speed, not distance...

The primary objective of dual-band is to reduce interference from other 2.4ghz networks (given that it's nearly impossible in residential areas to attain a 5 channel separation), and shifting 802.11n onto a separate frequency so as to not reduce the range for 802.11g devices if your network includes both. The 2nd and 3rd cards cannot do this so they are not implementing the same set of standards, nor are they the same speeds as 802.11n at 5ghz has a theoretical max of 450mbps and 300mbps at 2.4ghz.

Edit:- The TP-Link aso supports 802.1x and the others do not, though I will admit it's unlikely the OP will require that.
