I was told to get a PCI-E card because my computer doesn't have a built-in wifi adapter, but I'm unsure what to get. I have a Z370 Gaming Plus motherboard and my network modem router is a Netgear NightHawk. I'm unsure which PCI-e card I should get because I mainly need it for gaming purposes
What do you mean "what kind of"? My computer doesn't have a built-in wifi adapter so I was told by a friend to get a PCI-e card instead of a USB one because my main use is for gaming. Sorry if my question was vague
As u can see, OP, folks here don't think much of WIFI. If it comes with it oh well. If I were you I just go into amazon, search for something with no less than 4 stars reviews, within you budget, and nothing Chinese sounding, Dragon, 5Stars, GreatWall blah-blah. With a detachable antenna so you can relocate, use ext antenna as needed. Use same chipset as your WIFI router maybe.
Agreed. Either of those two PCI-Ex1 WiFi cards will do. What kind of connection you get will depend on how far from the Wireless hub you are and what kind of obstacles (walls) the signal has to pass through. It may or may not be good enough for gaming.
