Get a router with a 100 mbps speed rating and it should work just fine.

Enjoy the nature that is around you rather than destroying it.

I notice a drop in ping (response time) when im using wireless routing vs hard wired (ethernet cable) other than that routers are pretty similar as far as that goes, more important factors are your isp such as line quality from your home to your isp. Also how much internet traffic your gaming rig is important  and you can make tweaks to your computer as well.
