For a long time I used a $10 USB dongle.  It was somewhat spotty, perhaps because the antenna 
sucked.  But it was in a spotty computer so what do you want?

I currently have a PCI card that does 802.11n.  It's awesome, perhaps because it has an external 
antenna.  lspci says: Broadcom Corporation BCM4321 802.11b/g/n (rev 01)

I saw a web site that said this card was $100 but I got it as a hand-me-down.
