My System Specs

Default Atheros based wlan card vs intel based.

Looking to buy a wireless N card for a laptop, but can't decide on who to go with, Atheros or Intel. I want to be able to use aircrack-ng, so I'm leaning towards the Atheros based chipset but i don't know which one i should go for, links between the two are below:

Intel Wifi 5100 Wireless N 802.11N Mini PCI-E Card 300M on (item 180512099518 end time 23-Jul-10 22:35:54 EDT)
Atheros AR5B95 AR9285 802.11B/G/N Half Mini PCI-E Card on (item 130375347107 end time 14-Aug-10 04:59:03 EDT)

And will a half sized mini PCI-E card effect performance vs full sized?
