My system specs are as follows:

Ryzen 5 3600
2x 16GB GSkill Ripjaws V 3200
MSI B450 Tomahawk Max
Sapphire RX 580 8GB
Kingston A2000 1TB
ADATA SU650

So I was looking for wireless cards and decided to go for the fenvi hb1200 on aliexpress. Later I realized that aliexpress is banned in India and there is no other way that I can order something from chinese sites. Amazon.in has a similar one but with 3x the price (not at all affordable).

I searched in the used parts website and there was a guy selling a hack compatible BT and WIFI card.
#1: Tp Link T6E + Broadcom USB BT thingy
#2: NGFF -> PCI card + DW 1560

Which one should I go for? I;m currently on catalin; will upgrade Big Sur later and I need both Windows support as well

I picked up a TP Link T3U USB for $25.00 US it outperforms my PCIe BRCM94360 card. I used Chris1111 Big Sur Wifi utility. My 4360 rarely gets 100mbs. If this is available for you it works great for the price.

The 1560 will require kexts for wifi and bluetooth.

T3U looks promising. It costs ~$16 here in India. But that's only for WiFi.
DW 1560 has both, right? BTW there are a lot of issues surrounding DW 1560 and Big Sur. So I'm skeptikal which one to buy :confused:
