Windows 7 Wireless card/adapter

I just had to return my previous windows vista adapter because linksys did not have any drivers for windows 7. What is a good wireless card/adapter that will work with windows 7?
I have a full tower gateway

Most, if not all drivers that work with Vista will work with 7 (I have yet to find anything that works on Vista that doesn't on 7). Not to mention Win 7's Action Center helped me find new drivers automatically. I don't think you will run into problems with any drivers (assuming they're at least Vista-compatible, and almost everything is today). I suggest one of those cheapo USB wifi adapters.
