Im after a new modem i only have one pc so dont see the point in a router,is one of these options faster for surfing the web ???

For surfing the web there is no difference at all, for gaming it is arguable that a PCI modem will give faster pings but i have never noticed.

The main benefit is a PCI modem will not overload your USB port due to excess current draw.
