Hi i am wondering if any motherboards come with wireless connectivity built-in.

If not what is my best option to get wireless connectivity I have a wireless N router capable of getting 300Mb.

Some of the high end boards do have built in Wi-Fi. Personally, I'd just grab a PCI or PCIe wireless N card that way it can be used with different motherboards. What brand router do you have? I try to stick with the same brand for all the wireless gear.

+1 with that, get a pci card if you have the slot for it, cheaper to replace than a mobo if it breaks also

Tp-link make good Wireless PCI cards, if your using windows 7 64bit be aware of compatibility issues with certain ones pci cards though, USB wireless adapters work quite well if you want to keep it simple !

My old Asus P5K-E had built in wifi, wasn't that great though. As the other guys have said, easier to get a PCI card or a USB dongle, I have a Sitecom WL321 Wireless N dongle and it works great.
