    "I'm going with this, am I missing something?"...

    Yes, use a USB network adapter instead

    doesn't seem like a fast connection

    It would be as fast or faster than a simple PCI adapter

    If your choice of motherboard won't support a standard fast network card, you have other options... that's all we're saying here

    What's wrong with the Intel Gb port already on the mobo?

    It's clear to me you need another adapter or another motherboard. To make the best of your situation I recommend you buy a PCI-E wireless adapter to replace your old PCI adapter. An alternative is to buy a USB adapter but you seem to have rejected that, so okay, a PCI-E adapter it is.
