Hey guys, my computer setup is almost done but now I;m left with how I'm going to connect my PC to my home's wifi. Is there any significant performance differnce between suing a simple USB Dongle and a network card? Thanks!

Helps if I read the title.

Mostly the internal cards just cost more money. They don't work any better or worse. A USB has the advantage you can put it on the end of a extension cable if you have signal problems. Internal cards tend to be partially blocked by the case.

That adapter is discontinued on newegg.
