43% overhead seems too high to me
up to 300Mbps does not equate to full 300Mbps

same goes for USB2.0

up to 480Mbps does not equate to 480Mbps

nothing is "too high"

I always believe dun let the interface be the bottleneck. If it is, then how good the spec is, is all for marketing purpose. You can say how fast your thumb drive/SSD/HDD is, but when interface is bottleneck, you are back to square one, you will only get the max interface speed or slower, instead of the device actual speed (Just like Ferrari and chery QQ running on 50KM/h road when u are limited to 50KM/h).

i rather overkill on the wifi, then worry so much about the usb interface limitation.
i feel only with good signal will you hit the usb2 limitation for AC53.
of course congestion is another factor that will slowdown the link, but by then, the next standard should be out

i prefer usb3 of course, so i'm wishing for the 3stream usb3 ac adapter, which I can still use it on a usb2 if i want to.

since wifi is prone to distance and interferences, i rather overkill on the link speed.
i don't mind driving a ferrari on a road limited at 80km/h
at least i can get to 80km/h fast and easily, rather then a qq that needs a clear road to speed up to 80km/h

Maybe I should say a Ferrari with 50KM/h fuel cut-off, then speeding is not taken into consideration(You can't get more than what the interface provide on default).

before you start worrying on the wifi, you should know the limitation on how much a USB2.0 could do.

fix that, then we will talk about the wifi.

no reason to work hard on the wifi if the USB2.0 is the bottleneck which right now, clearly it is.

That's why it's better to use a PCI wireless card
EDIT: Whoops, didn't know there are PCIE implementations out there already.

Don't buy PCI anymore, gradually being phased out on new boards.

I forgot to edit my statement again...I am using a PCI-E card.
