In my opinion there would be virtually no difference in wireless connection; they both support 802.11N which is the important thing but the thing that will determine mostly your quality of Wireless signal and internet access will be:
The quality of the router (whether it is 'N' enabled or not)
Your Internet Speed (which you can find at http:/www.speedtest.net) and
The proximity to the router (make sure there aren't too many 2ft thick lead walls in your way )

Even though 'N' is capable of 70Mb/s your internet connection will be less than that (unless you live in Japan or South Korea or pay a stupid amount of money for your broadband) and will most likely be less than 10Mb/s as well.

In terms of MMO it really depends if the CPU/GPU/RAM are good enough to render it in real time (I'm pretty certain these PCs can do it with ease though.)

So my conclusion is that it doesn't really matter which you pick for this sort of thing.

Whatever you get make sureit supports "N" as well as "B" and "G" B and G are used for general serfing the web but N is used for gameing and will give you a strong single all the time, you also need to make sure that your router supports wireless B, G and N to get the most out off the card.
