    I would like to know if the Asus PCE-N15 will be fine for gaming? The connection I have is 70mb and the pc will be used 75% for gaming and the rest for work. Considering the very low price on this, I'm wondering if everything will be ok or am i better off going for something better?

    It'll work as well as anything else assuming you get a reasonable signal and don't expect ridiculously fast transfers over the WLAN to/from other local devices.

    I went with one of these

    https://www.overclockers.co.uk/asus...00-bluetooth-4.2-pci-e-adapter-nw-10a-as.html

    OK it's twice the price, but it's better and has an external antenna, and the on board bluetooth is good for xbox pad.
    Frees up a USB port although the Bluetooth has to connect to a USB header on the motherboard.

    Wireless AC aswell so more future proof.

    I got choppy performance streaming with my old wireless N dongle, this things rock solid.

    Looks great and i'll be saving the info for the planned build in a couple of months time; i would have bought the one you
    mentioned, but i ordered the other earlier.
