Will my dell xps 8300 work with the Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260

Hey, so I've known Dell gypped its xps 8300 customers for a while in terms of network adapter: equipping an N adapter that only works with 2.4 GHz WITHOUT any specification that this was the case.  Anyway, I'm ripping out that *** 1501 card and want to replace it with Intel Network 7260.HMWG WiFi Wireless-AC 7260 H/T Dual Band 2x2 AC+Bluetooth HMC which is also a half mini PCIe card.

I asked intel, they said to ask Dell.  I asked Dell, they said I was out of warranty and sent me to ask the out of warranty *** which gave me the run around of "go for it!  But Dell's not responsible yada yada."

Anyway, does anyone know if like... my voltage, card size, BIOS settings will interfere with the adapter working.  Or not even recognizing the device or being unable to install the drivers.

Thanks!

I am in the same boat -- looking to install a Wireless-AC half mini card in my XPS 8300. How did you make out (if you've gone ahead with the upgrade)?

Thanks!
