I've used a lot of these:

 

Edimax EW-7811Un 150Mbps 11n Wi-Fi USB Adapter, Nano Size

 

Amazon (US) has them for $8.95.  Haven't had any problems with them and they don't tie up a PCI-E slot.  If you need a bigger range or faster capaciity then you might try 

 

Edimax EW-7811UAC 11AC Dualband USB Adapter with High Gain Antenna   $21 on Amazon.  Very easy to install since you just plug them into a USB.  Usually don't need a driver.

 

 

If you insist on a PCI-E card then 

 

Rosewill 802.11N, N300 PCI Express Wireless Adapter/Wi-Fi Adapter/Network Card (RNX-N250PCe)

 

Should work OK.  $17
