Looking for a wireless N dual band PCI card.

I got a new d-link wireless N router the other day which solved most of my slow internet problems. It is a dual band router and supports 5ghz but my current network card is only 2.4ghz. I'm in an apartment complex so I figure if I run it on the 5ghz band I will get much less interference from other people's wifi. Only problem is I cant really find a dual band pci card??? The only one i've found is a Linksys WMP600N. I was hoping there were some more options out there. Anyone have any suggestions?

Linksys by Cisco Wireless-N PCI Adapter with Dual-Band WMP600N

Sorry, but like you this is the only one that I could find with a PCI interface. They are a reputable manufacturer though.

You're welcome. There are USB adapters available, for example D-Link Xtreme N Dual Band USB Adapter, but you will get a better result from a PCI card.

Yeah I'm not a big fan of the usb adapters. Plus I'm short on ports already. I'll see if I can pick up the linksys one off newegg or something.
