    If you feel there may be issues with wireless coverage to your desktop that far away it would be most beneficial to get a pci wireless card that can be fitted into the pc rather that a usb one. This option would allow you to upgrade the aerial on the card to a higher gain one if needed. PCI wireless card in my experience do tend to more consistently receive wireless signals over further distance than usb ones as well. If you heart is stuck on a usb one get the edimax hi gain one as it has a much better aerial.
