It is unlikely to work because you will probably need to install a PCIe x1 wifi card that is half height (low profile).

 

The wifi card you are enquiring about is full height and there will not be enough space in you OC's case.

Yes. That card will work.

 

 It will fit in the  PCIe x1 slot and in the  PC's enclosure.

 

It is compatible with many operating systems.

You're welcome. :)

 

The adapter is delivered with a seperate low-profile bracket.

 

You will have to use a screwdriver to remove the full height bracket and install the half height one.

Hello,

i bought the card, and installed it, but my computer is using the full height bracket, so i just install it, and it is perfect,

in this case i think that the fist card which i was thinking to buy, should work too, right?

thanks
