That doesn't make any sense. I think what you mean is anything less
than $75 would be acceptable; however, a price below $50 would be

I think you should be aware of the fact that you get what you pay for.
Cheap, aka "low end" cards often work poorly. For a relatively few
dollars more, a far superior card can usually be purchased. Whether or
no FreeBSD can fully utilize a higher end device is another matter
entirely. I have several PCs with high quality wireless "N" cards that
FreeBSD doesn't have a clue about.
