Wireless card or USB?

I am about to update/purchase a new desktop PC. I am also considering updating my 'wireless' kit to the new 'N'technology. Looking at one particular make the adsl router comes packaged with a USB adaptor. Would a 'dedicated' pci internal card be better,or would the USB adaptor work equally well?
Thanks in advance.

Your particular circumstance and machine usage.
A card occupies a slot - if you have slots to spare fine- USB Ditto although the use of Hubs perhaps expands the number of ports' conflict issues may arise.
Consider also the Operating system
if you are VISTA - USB may be more amenable than a card with potential driver issues.
