    What mini pcie wifi card for my Max V Gene

    Just bought a Maximus V Gene desktop mobo and I need a wireless card.

    I'd like to use the mini pcie slot.

    Ideally, the wifi card would also have bluetooth on board.

    I need the antenna(s) too.

    Any suggestions on which one to buy and where?

    I got a used AR5BHB92 off of eBay, but that's because I built a hackintosh and wanted the most compatible components possible. That one doesn't have bluetooth, and there may be better chips for Windows anyway.

    But for antenna, I can very much recommend the eBay seller "wifiexpert" (http://www.ebay.com/sch/wifi_expert/m.html) as he sells dual-band antenna pairs of various dBi with your length choice of included antenna - quite convenient.
