    Question on Wireless Network Cards?

    My Comcast Gateway (XB7) supports wireless AX, i bought a sorta cheap Wireless AC card when i picked up my new custom built Windows 10 Computer, ((Specs in signature, Desktop--I7 10700) Anyways i got another card on the way, which support Wireless AX.

    Would it be too much trouble to swap out the Wireless AC card, for the Wireless AX card? should fit in same PCi-e x1 slot this current card in, and perhaps use the same cable for the bluetooth 5.0 option i'd imagine....also would be my first time opening this new case since got it lol.

    ((not time for a dust clean out i don't think yet, just got the system yesterday from shop))

    In case anyone wonders, the Wireless AX card is this one, looks like pci-e just like current one is, might be slightly bigger, but i don't see an issue with it fitting into new case, or slot where current one is

    TP-Link WiFi 6 AX3000 PCIe WiFi Card | Up to 2400Mbps | Bluetooth 5.0 | 802.11AX Dual Band Wireless Adapter with MU-MIMO,OFDMA,Ultra-Low Latency | Supports Windows 10 (64bit) only (Archer TX3000E) (one i purchased with Giftcard prior to getting the Desktop home, not arrived yet from Amazon though) Due Friday July 3rd

    One Shop included free with Desktop was Asus Pci-e 55BT adapter, $34.99, it runs much better than my old systems built in Wireless on the motherboard, and internal antennas, so i am happy, just may still swap out to the AX3000 one when arrives.
