    Killer-N 1003 is better than Intel 6300 performance wise. If it is worth the cash depends on what you use your internet for. If you game online, the killer-N might be worth its price.

    on the dell site the intel is more expencive than the killer
    i bought the 6300 but just saw that the killer came out for the r3 so im thinking of returning it to get the killer , the reason i got the intel 6300 is cause of 5hz frequency wich mine doesnt have at the moment , do u know if the killer runs on 5hz frequency?

    It supports 5Ghz and is just as good as the 6300 if not better due to the packet allocation ability.

    Note that you will lose all of the technologies attached to an Intel wireless card if you opt for the Killer card. Some Intel technologies you will lose include: Intel My Wifi, Intel WiDi (Wireless Display).

    Also be aware that 99.9999% of people wont be able to tell the difference between a card like the Killer Wireless N and the Intel 6300. In fact, most people wont be able to tell the difference between the Killer Wireless N and a Wireless G card simply because the vast majority of Internet connections are significantly slower than even Wireless G. The Killer will only show its strength when gaming on a local WLAN against people also connected to the LAN/WLAN.

    I just bought the Intel 6300 for $35 from Buy.com for my M17x R3 and it's getting 300 mbps to my D-Link DIR-655

    This is partially true, The software and hardware features on/for the Killer wireless allow the usage of bandwidth to be more efficient to the tasks you are doing. Look @ the thread in the M18x section. Actually I will just link it to you. Ppl are noticing a difference with their video streaming as well as gaming.

    Stock one seems fine for me to use for torrenting gigantic files at speeds of over 125kbps.
