Hey guys! :hello: 

I've done as much research as I can on my new pc build, but there's one question I've never seen the answer to. My current PC (a 7 year old dell) required a wireless network card to connect to the internet without using network cable. Would I need one for a new build as well, or does this come built into the motherboard? If so, what would you recommend? Many thanks!

Don

There are a couple motherboards that have this built-in, but as a general rule you'll still need a PCI/PCIe card for this.

Beautiful, thank you so much! I can't "best answer" here at work for some reason, but I will as soon as I'm home.

BTW - can you recommend an Asus board for somone looking for SLI/CrossFire and only perhaps very modest overclocking?

As a general rule, I stay away from recommending anything, even when asked. Kind of a slippery slope, and once you start recommending things once or twice, it gets easier every successive time. I don't want to have to make the poor Tom's Hardware mods have to delete some of my posts because they seem like spam. :non: 

So, just make sure you read the product specs carefully with Asus boards. Sometimes there might be two boards with the same chipset, but only one will do SLI/CrossFire. That's probably true for the competition, but I don't really make a point of keeping up with what they're doing.
