Windows 7: Wireless Adapter Card recommendations for Desktops

Wireless Adapter Card recommendations for Desktops

Hey guys again. Remember when I couldn't get 16 GBs of ram working? Well since I got it to work (and it runs smoothly Thanks TVeblen!) my Netgear wireless card won't work. It won't work if I have more than 2 GBs of RAM. Which is stupid. I've already looked everywhere and the only answer I could get out of Netgear was "Sorry but we're working on an update". Screw them.

Anyway, I'm looking to buy another one because I hate running a 30 ft ethernet cable through the house so I can get internet. I really don't want to get bummed again so if you guys have an recommendations that would work with Windows 7 Pro 64-bit WITH 16 GBs OF RAM (lol) that would be awesome. :)


EDIT: This card will be used on a gaming rig. I love playing games online so I will need a lot of bandwidth. The netgear card was supposed to be a temporary one that I got for cheap.

I've always been skeptical of USB network options... :\ Is there an internal one that you know of?
