What is a good wireless network card for Win7?

Is i better to ger a PCI one these days or USB? Which one is likely to give the best reception? I had a Belkin 56g PCi card before, that was ok.

Both would give the same results but a USB device would be easier to install plus you could use it elsewhere if need be (whichever you choose make sure it's Windows 7 and wireless n compatible

Something like this would do ....

Personally, I'd take a PCI or PCIe WIFI card over a USB dongle any day. I've used both and usually get a better more reliable signal with a card because it has better Antennas. You can also swap them out for high gain antennas if you want. PooMan UK makes a good point though, the dongles are easier to install and move from PC to PC. I'd stay away from anything that is N150. Thats what I have read anyway. Its a crippled N300 device and the only reason they do it is so they can sell it cheaper than an N300 device. It doesn't follow a true WIFI standard. The 2.4 GHz band is unlicensed airspace so they can get away with stuff like that.
