Default Need small part for my Tower

I need a Wifi card...lol.

I know it's not like a HUGE upgrade but I do need one for the summer and if you could help me find one that fits in this Motherboard,

Newegg.com - ASUS B85-PLUS LGA 1150 Intel B85 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

I'd really appreciate it.

Any PCI or USB one, really. I had good luck with RaLink's PCI cards.

No I really don't think USB ones are reliable, even to this day. I'd rather get a Wifi card. But thank you for telling me that I will need a PCI one.

You could use a PCI-E 1x card too.

Higher quality USB sticks are quite reliable. You just can't cheap out on them. I prefer a 2 or 3 antenna MIMO card myself.

I'm stacking paper to the ceiling right now and riding on 24 inch chrome so cash really isn't an option to me as you can tell.

BUT if you link me an absurd $300, $200, or even a $100 one I will not buy it.

On second thought can they even go that high?

Most expensive card that I know of lol. Although, you don't really need to spend this much unless you have a router that can provide the speed too.

Newegg.com - ASUS PCE-AC68 Dual-band Wireless-AC1900 Adapter IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n PCI Express Up to 600 and 1300Mbps Wireless Data Rates WPA2

This card is rather decent for the price.

Well you did say to link a MIMO card. It's 2 antenna but for a little more you can do 3 antenna.
