Of course, it depends on the speed you want, how far away you are from the router etc but I can recommend a few basic, mid-range and extreme wireless PCI-E solutions. Basic: https://au.pcpartpicker.com/product/Chh9TW/tp-link-wireless-network-card-tlwn881nd This card does not support 5Ghz nor speeds above around 50Mbps

Standard ( would recommend this) https://au.pcpartpicker.com/product/tGrG3C/edimax-wireless-network-card-ew7612pin This card supports 5Ghz as it is the 'ac' variety of 802.11. Speeds also increase ( of course if your ISP provides these speeds) around 200 mpbs I'd say.

Extreme ( only needed if you have a 500mpbs or above internet plan , or far away from router etc) https://au.pcpartpicker.com/product/bQ8Zxr/asus-wireless-network-card-pceac56

well the router is in my room and i guess its around 100 mbps, but im trying to get a good internet since im playing a lot of online games lol. so which one should i go with? having bluetooth could be a good addition extra on the side too.

by checking online my connection speed seems to be 75-85 mbps.

You already have the router, so look at the label and see what wireless standard it supports. It may or may not support AC (probably not if provided by your ISP). Price goes up a lot for AC so if your router does not support it just get a $15-20 b/g/n card. You could still buy an ac card but it will be $50 or so more and you won't benefit from it if router doesn't do AC. Plus Ax is right around the corner so better to buy the cheap b/g/n now maybe and get an ax card/new router down the road if needed.

Wireless N will say 450Mbps btw which is more than your internet connection but you really only get 240Mbps or so in reality (still more than you need).

the 'standard' card listed isn't ac
