WIfi adapter upgrade

HP Recommended
P5Q80AV#ABA
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi,

 

I'm trying to upgrade the wifi adapter for my Desktop - 750-175se and I saw this post below which lead me to belive Intel AC 8260 is a compatible adapter for my desktop since my existing has two cable connected to it:

https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Wireless-and-Networking/Upgrade-my-wifi-adapper-to-5GHz/m-p/68...

But I'm wondering is there a even newer version of wifi adapter that's compatible with my HP motherboard?

 

TIA.

Hi:

 

If your PC has two antenna cables connected to the wifi card in there now, you should be able to upgrade to this card, which has twice the throughput of the 8260AC,and has the newer Bluetooth 5.0 revision.
