Wireless network cards.... PCI vs USB...

Every USB wifi adapter I used were crap and created a ton of jitter and was just slow in general. I never seen a USB wifi adapter work as well as internal one on lets say a laptop. Even laptops with low quality cards still perform better than the USB adapters I have tried. I'm going to need one for my desktop and was looking at these 2 here...

They are both TP Link.

I don't want to spend more than 30 bucks for one.... I just want one that performs flawlessly and effortlessly. I don't care about having a max signal strength as long as it keeps 2-3 bars is fine enough for me. Also one that wont slow down by DL speeds as well is a major plus.

Anyone have nay insights about these types of things?

Thanks for the input.

I really like TP-Link. I Recently bought the TL-WDN4800 for my desktop, and I'm really happy with it. The WN851, WN881 or WN951 would have been my next choices, but I didn't have an empty PCI slot, and decided to go with dual-band.
