I am building my first rig and i wanted an internal wifi card and this one (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833106062) and it says it uses a Mini PCI Express slot. I am getting the ASUS Rampage IV motherboard (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131803). It has a PCI Express slot which I am assuming is the same as the mini PCI express slot. Is this correct? Will this card fit this mobo? Thanks in advance for any help.

The card you linked is for laptops. Here http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100010074%20600014297&IsNodeId=1&name=PCI%20Express

The Intel card is misslabeled/in the wrong category.

So the only card i could use would be this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833106040

That won't work. You need a PCI(E), not Mini-PCI(E).

Just when I decide to post the forum screws up.

The page I originally linked has the right cards on it, with the exception of the Intel card, it is for mini PCIE/laptops. That was the card I referred to as being incorrectly listed.

I recommend this one. It's a great deal and the best part is that it's ASUS.
