    My laptop has today given up on cooling down my graphics card, which resulted in me disabling it in order to use the laptop to acess amazon and buy a new rig.
    But before i buy it i have a question.
    My Laptop has this wifi adapter :
    Qualcomm Atheros AR9285 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter
    I'm wondering if it will be possible to place it on a new motherboard.
    The motherboard i want is :
    MSI 760GMA-P34(FX) AM3+ AMD 760G 2 SATA 6Gb/s (7~8) ports by ASMEDIA 1061 Supports storage and data transfers at up to 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD

    Will be it compatible with that motherboard ?
    I also will be using my hard drive from the laptop, which is Hitachi ATA 320 GB hard drive, but i think that has to be compatible right ?
    And i still have no idea about the whole wifi thing. I know there are wifi usb plugs, and those built in adapters within the motherboard. Now which are cheaper and which are better ( as in speed and reliability ) ?
