The best network cards for your gaming PC


Playing video games on PC is not easy or cheap. Unlike console gamers, you have to deal with the  components of your machine, its drivers, the operating system… Everything must work in a synchronized way. But the result, if all goes well, is worth it. A powerful CPU, a heart-stopping graphics card, a good SSD drive, and network cards for gaming PCs are essential.

On the one hand, you will need to have  a good connection at home. Movistar can offer you fiber optics at speeds of 300 MB, 600 MB and up to 1 GB. This last option, the fastest at the moment, is available in some types of Movistar Fusion.

But  having 1 GB of fiber optics  at home is of little use if your gaming PC is later on at the other end of your house or if WiFi coverage is not enough. This is where  network cards come in to play online, specialized cards for gaming. Its purpose is to make the most of the bandwidth you have contracted and thus enjoy playing online  without loading problems or delays  during the game.

Let’s see several examples of network cards to play online that we can find on the market. There are for all tastes and pockets. And to connect with your Movistar router via Ethernet or via d8e WiFi.

Gigabyte GC-WB1733D-I

We start with one of the best network cards for wireless connection. That is, through WiFi. Although the  Gigabyte GC-WB1733D-I card  does not offer WiFi 6, the most current standard, with these gaming cards we can receive 1.7 Gbps over  WiFi 5 (802.11ac). In addition, it will also provide us with a Bluetooth signal to connect wireless devices such as keyboards, mice or game controllers.

In addition to the PCIe connection to connect to the motherboard, this PC network card offers an  internal USB input  to connect adapters for peripherals. As for its two ports for the antenna, it allows a  2Tx2R type WLAN transmission. In addition, it comes with a magnetic foot to facilitate its placement.

With  Gigabyte GC-WB1733D-I  you will be able to bridge the distance between your router and your PC and thus  obtain the maximum available bandwidth  to play online.


If you decide to opt for classic network cards to connect your PC to your router via Ethernet, one of the most professional options for gaming is this  ASUS XG C100F gaming PC network card . Looking at the external face we will only see  an Ethernet input, but the magic is inside.

The high price of this PC network card lies in its internal features. It is compatible with both fiber optic and DAC cables. It can reach  speeds of 10 Gbps  without loss. And it connects to your PC via PCIe 2.0 or 3.0.

Another particularity is that it integrates refrigeration. Its  aluminum heat sink  expels heat to prevent overheating in the card itself or in the rest of the components of your gaming PC. To this we must add that its  QoS technology  is in charge of  automatically assigning bandwidth  to each task, prioritizing the one that has to do with playing online.

TP Link Archer TX50E

We return with the network cards for wireless connectivity. On this occasion,  WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5  at a good price and with two antennas that will delight the most demanding.

The  TP Link Archer TX50E card  connects via PCIe, as usual, to add WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity to your gaming PC with its latest versions. In the case at hand,  WiFi 6, it comes with 1024-QAM and 160 MHz bandwidth. And for everything to work like hell, its  two high-gain antennas  guarantee wider coverage to bridge the distances between your router and your PC.

More advantages of having WiFi 6 on these gaming cards. WPA3 security to prevent anyone from accessing your local network and  OFDMA and MU-MIMO technology  to offer a more optimal connection, distributing bandwidth intelligently regardless of the number of devices connected to your home WiFi network.


 Another of the most recommended  network cards to  receive WiFi coverage is the ASUS PCE-AC56. Before we have seen a classic ASUS card for Ethernet use. This is one of its wireless equivalents.

Both share a design, so it also integrates  an aluminum heat sink  and connection to the motherboard via  PCIe 2.0 and 3.0. From here, their wireless characteristics make them different.

It offers a  dual-band WiFi 5 or 802.11ac connection . Like your router, which has a 2.4 GHz connection for long distances and a faster 5 GHz connection for more speed over short distances. This is helped by its two antennas integrated into the card itself.

Ubit AX200

Finally, if beyond the brands you are looking for good features, a good option for network cards for WiFi coverage is the  Ubit AX200 PC gaming card . Very cheap and offers WiFi 6, the latest standard, so you can  get up to 3 Gbps  in the best conditions.

In addition to WiFi 6, it also incorporates  Bluetooth 5.1 coverage. It connects to the PC via PCIe or via internal USB. And its two high-gain 2×2 external antennas facilitate  broadband reception  despite the distance to the router thanks to its 360º rotation.

Easy to install and configure, the Ubit AX200 PC network  card  is ideal for consuming 4K video or playing online  without loss of quality or speed.
