I would like to connect my desktop, running Windows 8x64 Pro, to a wireless network. Newegg shows several different different options, so I thought I'd ask here for advice/suggestions. TIA

ASRock Z68 EXTREME4 GEN3 Motherboard
Corsair Professional Series Gold AX750 Power Supply
CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB Memory
Corsair Vengeance Series C70 Arctic Case
EVGA 01G-P3-1460-KR GeForce GTX 560 Video Card
Intel Core i7-2700K Sandy Bridge 3.5GHz CPU
4 - OCZ Vertex 4 128GB SSD
1 - OCZ Vertex 4 256GB SSD
Sony Optiarc Black 24X DVDrw Burner

I have had the best results using Netgear dual band router and dual band adapter.
