Okay, I am NOT quite sure about this. Because I don't use wireless besides wi-fi for my mobile devices from my modem which has wi-fi.

But my cousin, has a desktop which has Windows 7 which is the one I just built for him, but I was foolish to not put in the factor that he uses wireless internet connection to connect to it.

Do I need a PCI wi-fi card? Or what?

please help...thank you.

I have a netgear WNA3100 wireless USB adaptor and it has served me just fine.

thanks guys!

I'm gonna buy both a USB wi-fi adapter and PCI wi-fi adapter card because I am not sure if the PCI will fit into the PCI slot due to the MASSIVE video card blocking the way.

A decent USB adaptor is fine these days for the average person. The main reason to go with PCI is if you want some other features or you want to free up a USB port.
