Some advice for a first timer


Jul 6, 2011
So I have the essentials down, but I need some advice when it comes to wireless adapters. For my current PC, I have a Belkin N300 USB adapter and it's really bad, so I was wondering if someone could suggest a PCIe adapter or something of the sorts. Also, do I go with Windows 8 or stick with 7? This would be for both gaming to everyday computer "stuff"
