    Asus z77 Sabertooth/Wireless Internet

    Hi

    I realise that this will be a stupid question to many of you.

    I am awaiting delivery of an Asus Sabertooth z7 Motherboard. Will I need to purchase a wireless network card or does it come with built in capability? I don't use a cable because the box is too far away.

    Would I be better off with an internal card or a USB dongle?

    Cheers in advance

    I'd say no: http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/SAB...specifications

    Internal card would be better, usb uses more system resources.

    This isn't the 1990s There would almost be no difference today, certainly with a wireless card.

    Besides, USB is just a bus. The issue you're thinking of is when USB devices offload processing onto the CPU. Internal cards can do this too if they want.

    Doesnt come with a build in card unfortunately.
    Id recommend an internal card. Normally theyve got faster speeds for a lower price and also, they dont take up a USB slot!

    You can get flat cables that go under carpets etc. I got one of these because there is a little gap at the bottom of my skirting boards that it fitted under. No cable clips/holes in wall required!
