Default Looking to upgrade wireless adaptor

Well I have been sticking with Linksys but any suggestions would work. I have a Wireless N dual band range plus linksys router. At first I had a USB linksys adaptor and that worked just fine but it snapped in half so I thought to go for a PCI adaptor for a faster speed but actually got a slower speed.

I currently have Newegg.com - LINKSYS WMP300N IEEE 802.11b, IEEE 802.11g, Draft IEEE 802.11n 32-bit PCI Interface High-speed Wireless-N Wireless Adapter Up to 256-bit wireless encryption - Wireless Adapters
my speed now 117 mbps "Very Good". with my USB one it was maxing at 170 and said "excellent'. Also I am dual booting windows 7 64bit and this adaptor isn't compactable with it...I am thinking of getting Newegg.com - LINKSYS WMP600N IEEE 802.11a/b/g, IEEE 802.11n Draft 2.0 PCI Wireless Adapter with Dual-Band WEP, WPA & WPA2 Personal, WPA & WPA2 Enterprise - Wireless Adapters but maybe i should steer away from linksys?

Thing I like about USB Adaptors is that if I need to repossion them, USB Externsion and USB Booster cables are a cheaper than wireless extension cables.
