I am building a gaming PC on ecollegepc and I've decided on everything except Wireless Networking.

I'd like to be able to connect wirelessly to my Verizon FiOS internet and I'm not sure which option to choose.  I'm assuming that any one of the choices will allow me to connect wirelessly using Verizon Wifi (I'm a noob when it comes to building a PC so please correct me if I am wrong about that) but not sure which one would be best for me.  They have 4 choices:

  1. Wireless B/G/N PCI Adapter 150 Mbps
  2. Wireless B/G/N PCI Adapter 300 Mbps
  3. Wireless B/G/N PCI-Ex Adapter 300 Mbps
  4. Wireless B/G/N Dual Band PCI-Ex Adapter 600 Mbps


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Go with #4 since its Dual Band and will give you the fastest wifi out of those options.

I have Verizon Home Fios which is apparently only 15/5 Mbps. Does that mean anything over 150 Mbps would be pointless?

Don't game on wireless, your ping will suffer.
