    If the motherboard WiFi needs upgraded, then just disable on the onboard WiFi adapter and plug in the upgraded USB WiFi adapter. But, if the motherboard WiFi is supplied by a WiFi card plugged into a mini-PCIe slot, then the installed card can be upgraded as well.

    Is it best to get a MoBo w/WiFi?

    i wouldn't let Wifi be a determining factor on buying a MoBo. If the MoBo has the features you want and it also has the ability to do Wireless.....then why not? It gives you the option.

    On an older machine in my house, I moved it to a room that doesn't have an easy method for running a network cable and I added a small USB wifi adapter for about $25 (from Asus) and it works just fine. I connect at 585Mbps which is fast enough for what I need it to do.

    An additional consideration

    If you get a MoBo to which you connect a WiFi/BT adapter then you will be better-placed to take advantage of faster WiFi standards as they are introduced.

    I'd hazard the guess that you want your MoBo to last longer than a single generation of WiFi/BT adapters. I had to replace some WiFi adapters last year when my WirelessISP {'WISP'} signal changed to 5.8GHz [my previous 802.11ac adapters worked on "5GHz" which means "5.0GHz" and doesn't stretch to 5.8].
    - The definition of 802.11ac includes "5GHz", 5.0GHz & 5.8GHz so having an adapter categorised as 802.11ac is not the whole story. In other words, my 802.11ac adapters were not capable of detecting all possible 802.11ac signals.
    - The definition of 802.11x has been fixed so we know that further changes will come about once that standard is used by network providers.
