    Howdy. I am looking for a compatible PCI 802.11n wireless NIC to put in my Mac Pro.

    I have seen an internal module that is 802.11n and has to be screwed in, but it'll be quicker to throw in a PCI card.

    Are there any I can buy at any big box electronic store or should I just go and find the internal, screw-in card?

    Thanks!

    Just to make sure you know, the Mac Pro will not take a PCI card as it only has PCIe slots (4x full size PCIe, 1x mini-PCIe).

    Installing a mini-PCIe card shouldn't take too long and as long as it's either an Apple card or similar it shouldn't need any additional drivers or software.

    Though does the 2009 Mac Pro come with the aerials if it didn't come with the wireless card?
