Is there's any way that i can setup the airport extreme base station with a desktop.

The desktop is not wireless. it has no wifi card. do i have to have a wifi card or is there another way?

    Yes, without a wifi card:
    If the desktop meets the minimum System Requirements for Setup and Administration, connect the desktop to the base station with Ethernet cable using one of the three Ethernet LAN ports. Having already installed AirPort Utility to your desktop prior to that, open AirPort Utility on your desktop and after it recognizes the base station, proceed with AirPort Utility's setup process by following the onscreen instructions.
