I need some help finding a wireless adapter for my desktop computer. I do not have any clue of what to get when it comes to this. I plan on doing some heavy gaming, so I'm guessing a faster one would be good. Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers :)

What type of router do you have? THat will dictate more about what wireless adapter you will get. Is it wireless a, b, g and/or n. Also, wireless tends to introduce about 5-10 msec in ping (according to the gaming forums I have seen, maybe BS though).

Sounds like Wireless G from the descriptions I have seen. I have seen conflicting reports on whether your device suports Super-G 108Mbps transfer speeds. If so then you are best off going for one of the Netgear Super-G desktop cards (either USB or PCI).

THat being said since I can't confirm it, one of the best wireless G cards is:

It has 200mW of power making it very powerful for range and signal strength.
