Looking for a new wireless card and gpu. Suggestions?
 
I am looking for a new wireless PCIe 1x card capable of injection and compatible with aircrack-ng. Preferably the Atheros chipset. I have been looking at the TP-Link TL-WDN4800 but am unsure if the Atheros AR9380 in particular is compatible. Does anyone have any experience with this card?

Also am looking for a new gpu. Are either ATI or AMD better at bruteforce? I have been using ATI but thought I might try something new. My budget is around 500. Any input is appreciated :-)

Edit: Also, would it be more beneficial to crossfire two $250 gpu's rather than buying one $500 gpu?

Hi:

Here are a few articles that should help.
Don't purchase the first one you see you may be sorry if you do. Learned that the hard way-

AMD

Tried to find out if they are compatible.....the answer isn't easy to find-
Maybe another member will know. Sorry that I don't but I looked for you.

For GPU:

The Federal Communications Commission has an id search if you want to look up more detailed information on the chip's device. Not sure if that would help you to determine comparability but thought to put it out there.

Hope this helps
