Wireless Airport Card Replacement with New 802.11ac

Text:

iMAC Intel 27" EMC2390

Can I swap out the original wifi card for an Intel 7260 card that gets 802.11ac?  The connectors look the same but the intel card has Bluetooth on it as well, would this be an issue?

I run nothing but windows on my imac now.

It sure would be nice to get gigabit wireless as I am upgrading to an SSD hard drive.

Thanks in advance!
