So...should I go for the USB adapter or the card? I'm getting mixed opinions, and with my lack of knowledge regarding computers, am not sure what to do.
It doesn't make a difference really. Go with USB for the convenience of not needing to open the case.
Edit: On second thought, I'd go with the PCI card if you don't have USB 2.0. 1.1 is extremely slow and might limit your download/upload speed depending on how fast your connection is. --- -TropicMoon - as humid as a summer's day on triton http://i.imgur.com/N9lTE.jpg
