Which card to buy to work with Kismet, Aircrack, etc?


Alright, I'm looking for a pretty cheap (hopefully not more than $50) wireless card that will work with Kismet and Aircrack. From what I've read I'm looking for a card with a Prism, Orinoco, or Atheros chipset. Except something said that Orinoco didn't work with the packet injection that is needed by Aircrack or something, right? Anyway, just from looking around I think I'm leaning towards an Atheros-based card. Can anyone recommend a pretty cheap one that is known to work with Kismet and Aircrack?

The three cards I'm currently looking at are:
TP-Link WN510G - http://www.interprojekt.com.pl/tplin...l?currency=USD
Super-G - http://www.aokunlimited.com/product_...oducts_id=3515
SMC EZ Connect - http://www.sureneeds.com/smcwcbtg.html

This NL-2511CD+ uses the Prism II chipset and it works out of the box with Kismet and Aircrack.
