Hello everyone.

i'm going to buy a wifi card, and since i'm a fan of apple accessories i would like to have also a bt4.0 card ( for magic mouse ecc... )

What's the best OOB card i can get?

i'm on maverick and i'm not on a laptop.

Horrible wifi card as the card has not worked right for most users since 10.7.4. 

 

Atheros AR5B91 is a good wifi card that works OOB. With a PCIe adaptor from Ebay you can build the card for around $10 to $15. 

 

Now for the best wifi card it does not work OOB and needs a SSDT/DSDT edit to work. My guide on my AC wifi card:
