Build your own, get a mini-PCIe to PCIe card, and an Intel 5300 or 6300. That would be, what I consider, the "Best".

Otherwise, most adapters, whatever the make or model will work fine with little issue

You are confusing multi-band with MIMO's signal processing technique. They are both completely different things.

depending on some factors, you may want to heavily invest to only have issues at times, or go the old sneaky way of hiding the sn..cable behind your gaming rig and such.

the mini pci-e thingie is fun. and those mobile adapters kick butt.

Woah I didnt know you could pop a 6300 in a desktop. Is it actually worth it to do that? Are there any numbers available on the benefits over a straight desktop card?

I agree with chilly. That would definitely be the best choice. The desktop cards use the same chipsets anyways but with this you have more choices.

I agree with Chilly as well, best solution IMO since laptop cards are built to produce a good signal in a small package.
