Shouldn't be a problem, I upgraded to that card from a Dell 1901 BT/wifi card.

I have an Acer 7750G and I have the Qualcomm Atheros Wireless AR5BHB92 card. https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00JES ... UTF8&psc=1

I'm wondering if I can upgrade to an AC card like this for example http://www.amazon.com/Intel-7260-HMWG-R ... B00MY9S692

Thanks in advance!
If you are running Win 10, download the latest drivers from the Intel website and not from the Microsoft Update.

Just get an USB one. Decent ones from NameBrand companies go on sale regularly for $10-20. Plus if you ever scrap your existing build, you wont have to worry about what internal slots it needs to support and it'll be plug and play

On the other hand USB AC adapters are notoriously unreliable with constant overheating and dropped signals. I think going for an internal wifi adapter is definitely worth the time and effort.

Any idea about the Intel 3160 vs Intel 7265?

3160 appears to be a single antenna solution, so it's limited to 433mbit connection maximum. I know my 7260 dual antenna is faster than that in real world transfers (60+ MB/sec, or 480mbit). I guess it would depend on your complete network setup if it's worth the price difference.
