Can someone recommend a compatible bluetooth card for XPS 8700

My bluetooth keyboards and mice randomly disconnect often.  My headset audio loses sync with video. Other times audio is fine but video lags to a crawl but immediately fixes once my bluetooth device is disconnected. I've tried updating drivers..etc and can't seem to solve the problem. I'd rather just buy a new card and see if that solves everything. Can someone please recommend a great card that would be compatible with my computer. 802.11ac preferably 

Dell XPS 8700, Windows 10

RE: Can someone recommend a compatible bluetooth card for XPS 8700

I would add a PCIe adapter card with antennas on the back: like this:

search ebay for this "wireless mini pcie to pcie adapter" and you'll find several for about $10 USD.

and then add in a mini pcie card of your choosing: I think I'd choose this one:

intel dual band wireless-ac 7260HMW WiFi+Bluetooth 4.0 PCIe Half Mini Wifi Card

New on ebay for about $25 USD.

I'd expect drivers from Intel would work without any issues, but Windoze 10 will take care of the drivers anyway weather you like it or not.
