Hi All

Looking for some help, I am after a Bluetooth / WiFi Combo PCI card, have found the GC-WB300D from gigabyte, if purchased on ebay its roughly $40 -$45 us, but twice that for shipping. Does any know if you can get these down here in this part of the world? if so please tell me where Sealed. Furthermore dos any one have one, are they good?

any reason a USB equivalent won't do?

They tend to be easier to find (and cheaper)

Will be in a HTPC wife thinks the case itself is messy enough, on looking more closely at this product, the diagram shows  under the bluetooth 4.0 Antenna line (wifi receive  where under the Wireless Antenna line it says (wifi transmit + receive) correct me if I am wrong, this means the bluetooth only receives signal and can not transmit it? please tell me I am been daft.    diagram is on this page ==> http://www.gigabyte.com/microsite/306/images/wifi.html
