Dell xps 8700 wireless card upgrade

Hey men, bought a XPS 8900 desktop computer last year, it just supports 2.4 band. I am looking to upgrade the Wifi card in this.

I am currently looking at these models:

What specifically is the difference in between these 2 cards? Any performance differences?

Also, is the Wifi card and stuff proprietary on the mobo, or have the right to I simply pop among these in and also it starts working?

Its just a conventional M.2 card. Just have to upday driver and also that's it.

The just thing I can think of performance wise is to acquire new antenna as well, u deserve to get it bundled via the card.

Yes I did, I gained the 8265 version, inspect ebay I obtained it for under $10 (I think prefer $7-8 if I recall).

It functions well, although the 5Ghz mode on mine is a little bit finicky (might be my rexternal or maybe the card), however I am happy through it. But it features choose normal 98% of the moment, I use BT via the Wifi at the exact same time as well for my speaker and also I have no problems with rate or anypoint.

Everypoint is incredibly constant, the stock card was excellent also dont gain me wrong, however not having the dual band also made it tough for me to use.
