Where is the wifi card and how do I remove it from my PC

by andypandyman - 12/31/12 9:05 AM

Hi,
I have a new Desktop PC (QUAD CORE AMD BULLDOZER 3.6GHZ 1TB HDD 8GB DDR3 RAM HOME DESKTOP COMPUTER PC (200704429960))which has no wifi adapter fitted. I was going to purchase one that the PC supplier recommended ( W311P - 150M WIRELESS PCI ADAPTOR COMPUTER PC), but now that I no longer need wifi in my older Medion MD8393 PC, I thought that I might swap it over to my new PC.
The only problem is that I can't actually find it !
The Medion instruction manual does not give very much in the way of technical detail, but then it is not meant
to be a maintenance manual.
The motherboard is an MSI MS-7502: http://edan.net23.net/allegro/plyta-glowna_komp-msi/DSCI0032.JPG
Can anyone tell me where to locate it please ?
I'm also going to transfer the TV tuner card over to the new PC once I have succesfully installed the wifi card, but I think that I can do that without any help.
One final thing I intend doing, is to buy a half-decent graphics card for the new PC as it only has integrated graphics. The Medion has an Nvidia GeForce 9500 GS, but I require a HD card in the new PC and at the moment, in the price range that I can afford, I'm considering either:
Sapphire Radeon HD7750 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI EXPRESS 3.0 x 16 HDCP Ready (11202-00-20G)
or the less expensive:
Sapphire Radeon HD6670 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI EXPRESS 2.1 x 16 HDCP Ready Low Profile (100326LP).
I would appreciate any thoughts on either of these two video cards or indeed, any suggestions on other compatible cards within the same price range.
