Default Need Help on Choosing Right Card

We just set up AT&T U-Verse and I need to figure out what kind of card I need to purchase to stick in my tower in order to get wireless connection. Everything else that's wireless works great here with just shy of 12 Mb DL speed (3 laptops & Sony TV). I'll probably be buying from Newegg as I'm too famailiar with any other stores down here. The specs for my system are listed in my info. Don't want to spend anymore than I have to, but any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

i have been liking these lately for desktops

NCIX.com - Buy Linksys WUSB100 Range Plus Wireless Network USB Adapter 802.11B/G/N - WUSB100 In Canada.

I just feel it gives me more options for the same price as a PCI card. Faster setup to... I don't have to crack my case.

why ever you would pay $70 on a wireless adapter I don't know. If you want it to just connect to a wireless network, all you need to spend is like $30 with tax.
