Something I used for years, was cheap, had pretty good range and had decent speed for a Wireless NIC was the ASUS PCE-N15.

 

Big downside of it is it only supports 2.4GHz b/g/n so it really depends on what you're after as to weather or not it's a good choice.

I'm not familiar with what's good or not, but I can vouch for the Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260. I used it for a couple of months when i needed good wireless, before I could run a cable.

Edit: Although it looks like they're hard to come by now... https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833106192

I have used USB 3 and PCIe wifi adapters. I wouldn't say any one is better than the other. 

 

Just depends on whether or not you have a PCIe or USB slot to spare.
