Doesn't really matter these days, most of the chipsets are from the one source for all manufacturers for NICs.

But for best compatibility with the router/modem stick with the same brand.

Thanks for the responses. I'll look for something from the makes of my wireless router first.

I wish I could connect directly but the modem is downstairs and my room is upstairs. So I have to use wireless.

Almost all routers (even crappy ones) will allow you to game comfortably. You're best bet is getting one that will live a long life and be relatively stable.

If you do want performance though this is the router I use:

Note that I did not get this for gaming purposes. I do many backups to a server of my many devices wirelessly and the speed helps that reliability a lot. The performance on this for games is the same as the standard whatever model from NetGear (gave it away to someone so I have no idea if it still works or not).
