New computer; not sure if I can use Wi-fi

First off, I apologize if this is not the right area, I think this could be covered in multiple areas.
Okay, I am in the process of building a new desktop computer ( for anyone that wants to have a look), and after receiving most of the parts, I had a concern. I don't think I will be able to use the internet. I cannot run a phone line/Ethernet cable to the location where I want the computer so I cannot do a wired connection.
If I wanted to do a wireless connection, what kind of component would I need in my computer?
I'm sorry if this doesn't make sense; I'm not that great at explaining things via text.
