This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

*Wifi 6 router required. Card comes with Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200 which sells for £23 in the UK. So its just £20 for the card and Ariel which seems pretty cheap as it is likely up gradable in the future. Unless you want to buy a unknown Chinese WIFI 6 card, this is as good as it gets. Whats WIFI 6? imagine your delivering Pizza and you have 7 to deliver, with the old AC standard and below you could only deliver one Pizza at a time with WIFI 6 you can deliver all 7 at the same time. In data terms if you have a fast internet connection and are running lots of content, your network won't slow down or choke. The other advantage is the sheer connection speed. Top tier AC network may see 35-50mbs (mine before upgrade 20mbs) with this tech you will likely see 80mbs or higher.

new tech always has a premium attached to it. found a favvi card on amazon that was a bit cheaper, but noted this was a branded card and upgradeable.

If you can find a cheaper WiFi6 card from a reputable brand I'd love to see it. This is a good price

Yes

Yes



So add on another £350-£500 on top of the price of the card then.

To achieve the maximum from it, yes. It is backwards compatible with all the previous WiFi standards
What's WiFi 6 ?

That expansion slot Is designed for for ac wifi not wifi ax. Almost bought my self. The new model also has an enhanced ariel for wifi 6. Also lots of dodgy Intel ax200 wifi cards made in China. The one on this list is sold by Amazon and is branded. If your happy to stick with ac then the one you listed is a great purchase at that price, I nearly bought it. Thing is buying old tech is OK, but I'd rather have the latest. Loads of wifi 6 routers on Amazon, this has only just changed since the new standard was certified.
the pcb is worth a few quid on ebay

the AX200 wifi card can be had for 15 on ebay (that's where I bought mine for my laptop)

imho if you're planning on putting this into a desktop... you're better off wired (or even using a powerline ethernet kit if you don't want to run cabling)
Hawaiian or pepperoni?
