Noob WiFi antenna connection question

I've never really bothered much with wifi, so I've got some catching up to do. I want to make a few antennas and I have some questions about the needed parts.

The one thing all antennas tend to have in common is a BNC connector like these.

I'll need a wifi card so I bought the cheapest one I could find that still allowed you to replace the antenna. As luck would have it, it's got an acheros chipset and the antenna connection is an SMA plug.

Now I need to connect these two, so I think I need a BNC male to SMA female cable. I can't find one of those - just plugs. So one solution is to buy the plug and get an SMA - SMA cable.

But if I do that, I might aswell use one of these instead of the BNC connector.

Thoughts?
