Wireless USB or PCI adapter

Hi all!
I just got win7 and its working smooth right now ... But I have a recent question: I want to get rid of all the cables that I have, included like 5feet of ethernet cable so I want to get a PCI or a USB wireless to connect to my Router but I dont really know which one would be the best for me and of course, 100% compatible with win7 ... Any ideas?
Thanks!!

PCI advantage - clean appearance, does not utilize USB resources. Over drawing the USB has been an issue for some users.

USB Thumb advantage - does not occupy PCI slot. Easy to move around if you want to "search" for signal.

What is best for you? I do not know.
