Pretty much anything that is USB or PCI should be fine.
For your board you will want PCI if u want an internal card. While u do have a PCI-E x1 slot, it may become blocked if you use a dedicated GPU in the x16 slot.

TP-LINK or INTEL are both good.
You'll want it to support Wireless N and WPA/WPA2 Encryption

TP-LINK TL-WN851ND

PCI, 802.11b/g/n with 300Mbps, 2x detachable wifi antennae. Also much cheaper as Intel, while still a very good brand.

Thats not a issue. Thy should work with any Windows from XP above. I think even the windows generic driver in Win 7 would be enough, however all TP-Link products come with a driver mini CD. The Plug & Play for Windows 8 32bit info is there only because some devices (regardless of brand) used to have driver issues with Win 8, especially with 32bit version.
