Good wireless USB adapter win 7 64 bit

Hi everyone, I'm looking for a new wireless USB adapter to replace my netgear WG111t. The reason for this is because it is causing my htpc to crash with blue screen and it has it's driver in the list as the issue.
My htpc is running windows 7 64bit
Amd A8-3850 APU 2.9ghz 4gb ram.

Was looking at the netgear n600. (WNDA3100)

Any suggestions? Will be streaming hd movies and downloading large files simultaneously.

I've found the ones with the tacky little antennas tend to receive much better.
To be honest you may want to consider going with a pci device they're a bit more robust than the usb ones. They are pretty much exclusively low profile too, so it shouldn't be a problem even if you are dealing with a micro atx htpc.
