PCI wireless card by blake
I'm new to this stuff and I'm building my first rig, does this have connections for a PCI wireless card in it?

Help by Gus
Hello, i'm in desperate need! Does this motherboard have a wifi adapter on it? Compatible with a AMD FX-6300 Processor and a Comrade Midi tower black case?
This motherboard does not have wireless capability built in, it is also for an Intel CPU not an AMD one, however it will fit in a Comrade tower.
