Product Overview The ASUS PCE-AC68 is a new 802.11ac Wi-Fi PCI Express adapter which upgrades your desktop from tangle-some Ethernet cables to carefree industry-leading 802.11ac at up to 1.3Gbps. Plus, the stylish external magnetized antenna base gives you more flexibility in adjusting antenna placement to get the best signal reception quality possible.


Next-generation Wi-Fi on both bands!
Broadcom TurboQAM™ hardware integrated on the PCE-AC68 brings the speed benefits of next-generation 802.11ac Wi-Fi to both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands. At 600Mbit/s and 1.3Gbit/s respectively, they turn the PCE-AC68 into a formidable AC1900 wireless adapter, providing speeds that cannot be bettered by generic wireless adapters. Connect the PCE-AC68 to ASUS networks to attain the very highest possible Wi-Fi speeds.

Extend and strengthen your wireless connection

ASUS AiRadar intelligently strengthens wireless device connectivity using precise directional signal amplification for extended coverage, increased data-throughput speed, and enhanced stability. Wi-Fi-connection strength varies based on your environment, so the PCE-AC68 intelligently detects wireless router locations and ‘shapes’ data transmissions using three external antennas and high-powered beam-packing — assuring the fastest stable connection.


No more dead zones with 150% the coverage!
Powerful two-way transmission and a signal-boosting high-gain design give the PCE-AC66 improved two-way transmission that extends Wi-Fi range and coverage by up to 150% compared to generic client devices. This extended reach means the elimination of dead spots at any location, offering fast and uninterrupted HD streaming and smooth multiplayer gaming wherever you may be

WiFi is a wonderful thing. You can take your laptop anywhere in your house and access the Internet, or access your network from the garden. However, it does introduce the grim possibility of somebody else doing exactly the same, without you ever knowing. This guide seeks to make you aware of various security terms and ideas associated with wireless networking and what you should consider when setting up a wireless network.

As a growing number of homes contain more than one computer, their users must find ways to network them. The primary purpose for creating a home network tends to be to provide Internet access to all computers within the house. There are other good reasons, however. These include enabling LAN gaming, data backups from one machine to another and the sharing of music within the home.

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by A little expensive; but worth it! Yes the price is high but you get what you pay for. You can feel the build quality as soon as you get it out the box. Plugged it in and boom 98% the speed of wired ethernet... now that's a result I can live with. 09 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fast I needed high speed wifi, I have TB of photos on my LAN on a NAS which feed to Lightroom on my PC. I bought the Asus 1900 4x4 wireless AP as the other end and by simply lining up the aerials I achieved pretty stable 1300 mpbs link. It is clearly not the constraining factor now in movement of large files which is faster than in my wired gigabit LAN from my old PC. I get maybe 80Mpbs just drag and drop in Windows file manager. You do need to install software/drivers from CD, you won't get default drivers getting it going in my experience, but this is not a flaw just a note. Really happy with this, really pleasantly surprised how fast it is 28 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great WiFi Card Purchased this to put a spare desktop PC in a room which was too far away for a fixed line connection. Easy to install and works like a dream with a very strong wifi connection. 26 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by No more dropped connections Can't recommend this highly enough - works great on windows 10 with drivers downloaded from Asus website. fantastic quality build from card through to aerials. if you are on the fence about this just go ahead and get it. Great delivery and comms from Scan as always. 10 January 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by performs as expected Performs exactly as expected. The external antennae is very useful as when the antennae are plugged directly in to the back of the card I had a poor signal – likely due to proximity to the cabling, and my overclocked PC. The included software is the usual level of ASUS quirkiness, and on Windows 10 at least, drivers are needed. They’re only included on optical disc, so if you device does not have an optical drive you may have issues. 19 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best wifi card hands down Let me just say use to use tp link wifi card. When i switch to this one i got 10 times better performance then i use to recommend it to anyone who are far from they'r rooter! 16 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent speed and range First card I received had real issues connecting to 5ghz channels, but the replacement card is behaving much better. Am seeing speeds over 800mbit connecting to router on a different floor, which is plenty fast enough (on 5ghz band to an AC router). I don't think that the cable length for the antenna stand is too short (which many people comment on) - it can reach from the bottom slot on my Corsair 800D case to the front at the top of the case which is good. One word of caution for anyone looking to use this on a 5ghz channel in a busy area - the card only supports 5ghz channels 36-48 so if those are already in use it won't be able to connect to a 5ghz channel. Shame as my DSL-AC86 router supports a lot more 5ghz channels. 21 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by superb easy install, great piece of kit, superfast, no connection issues with fibre or cable 04 September 2015

Answer: 
It should do. It fits in the small PCI slots and is not especially wide, so if any card would fit no reason to think thisone would not, but I dont have your mobo with SLI to knwo for sure

Answer: 
I have a PCIe port above my GTX 760.

This card fits there perfectly.

May need to think about whether or not you care about the heat generation of 2 components being that close together.
