help: picking a wireless card for windows 7 64-bit desktop

By Snuffy09 ·
(NEVERMIND)
I just built a windwos 7 64bit htpc

I was planning on using my old Linksys WMP54G Wireless-G Adapter card (PCI) for network

I found out quick that it wont work with 64bit windows.

can somebody suggest a similar card (pci) that will work with 64? i would like to stay away from the cheapo cards

Thanks

I went with the EDIMAX EW-7128G IEEE 802.11b/g cuz I was in a crunch, I had to make a decision.

I couldn't find it on microsoft's list but from what i read it works with 7 64-bit, not crazy about the long antenna but as long as it works well.
