Reviews of this card say that the improvement it supplies is negligible, that it isn't really needed. So what would happen if I removed it from my Aurora R3? Would there be any adverse effects?

which one do you have? and what would you install in its place?

I have the 1103 card and love it

I have a 2100 but was not thinking of replacing it, just using the standard network connector on the back panel.

If you didn't have any other wireless card installed then you would lose your ability to use Wifi. Otherwise it's not that big of a deal. Wireless cards aren't really necessary in desktops though since you should just plug it up with an ethernet cable and be done with it.

I have Wifi with my broadband hub which works for my laptop. I don't need it for a PC as you say. Removing this card would free a slot for say a good SoundBlaster card.

I removed the network card , it made no difference to performance.
I am considering swapping the Radeon 6800 for an Asus ATI HD 7750, as the 6800 is giving faulty hardware warnings. Will the 7750 cover the next PCIe1 slot or will it remain free?
