I have a CyberpowerPC Ryzen system that uses an MSI B350M Bazooka board along with a ASUS 1060 gb graphics card.

In moving the PC to another room in the house I wanted to see about adding a wireless card to the system but looking at the motherboard and the graphics card it looks like one of the PCI-E connectors is blocked by the graphics card and the second one is pretty close to being blocked. Even if a small wireless card could plug in, one of the fans would be blocked.

How would the build end up if I had originally requested wifi connectivity? What should I use to get wireless now? USB? I never see the fans running on the card so maybe plugging in the wifi card would not harm anything.

Looking for ideas.

Thanks

Can you move the cards around to get a better fit?  If you have more than one PCI slot, sometimes changing the location each one is plugged into can solve this problem.

I have used wireless USB and it can work ok, but if you are gaming, it is less than ideal.
