So here's the setup. I have

-A 1500$ gaming pc build soon to arrive
-A wife who wants no cords on the ground or under rugs
-A desk against a wall not accessible to an Ethernet cord or a cable outlet (does have electrical outlets, let's not get hasty)
-A direct, 10 foot away view of the wireless router from the desk
-50 mBps (I think that's right) Internet package that provides 45-55 with Ethernet cable
-15-18 mBps wireless internet to laptop on desk awaiting its replacement
-linksys EA6400 wireless router
-Motorola surfboard sb6141 modem

The question:
I know it might not make a huge difference, but I would LOVE to get as close as I can to the 50 Mbps on my new gaming rig without using a Ethernet cord dragging across the floor (or under fake things or taped around door frames, tried it, she said no). I know I may not get to even 25 mbps but I will rest well knowing I tried my dangest. So, budget is around 120$ for antennas, or router settings (linksys EA6400), or access thingies. Links or exact products are appreciated. And if complicated please let me know where I can study up.

From what I have done on my research, it seems the best option for me is:
ASUS PCE-AC68 Dual-band Wireless-AC1900 Adapter IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n PCI Express Up to 600 and 1300Mbps Wireless Data Rates WPA2

Let me know your thoughts or better options please
