Before you go to the time, trouble and expense of purchasing a new wireless card can you tell us what problem/s you have encountered and the brand and model name or number of the present device that will not connect, is it this device from your build topic.
Many newer devices (not only wireless cards) will quite happily work in Windows 8 and 8.1 using W7, Vista and in some cases even XP drivers.

The issues with the Rosewell card was that, even after driver installation It wouldn't pick up a signal, or even acknowledge one was there. I went back to the newegg page that I ordered it from and saw that a lot of reviews said it was incompatible with windows 8.1.

Your replacement device is of better quality/performance and I hope that you have no issues with it, did you note the following on the Amazon homepage System Requirements: Windows 7 (32/64bits), Windows Vista (32/64bits), Windows XP (32/64bits) no mention of Windows 8 or 8.1
As an asides Keith can I ask whether or not you tried the Windows 7 or Vista drivers for the card.
