Powerline adapters I'd say are best for gaming. Wifi signal isnt really stable enough. If you do, Netgear and Belkin tend to be the best. Try and get a pci card rather than usb if you can

Never bother with the cheap USB options, no matter the value they seem to hold.
As above, powerline is a damn sight better.

Although I myself do use wifi for gaming

I use the built in card on my p8z77 deluxe though which makes the point kind of mute
