    Any Cat 5e or 6 cable should do the trick, supports gigabit speeds, etc.

    I buy most of my cables, both audio and video and network related from www.monoprice.com.

    25ft Cat 6 cables are $4.44
    For only $3.60 each when QTY 50+ purchased - 25FT FLEXboot Series 24AWG Cat6 550MHz UTP Ethernet Bare Copper Network Cable - Black

    50ft Cat 6 cables are $7.33
    For only $6.44 each when QTY 50+ purchased - 50FT FLEXboot Series 24AWG Cat6 550MHz UTP Ethernet Bare Copper Network Cable - Black

    75ft Cat 6 cables are $9.95
    For only $8.99 each when QTY 50+ purchased - 75FT FLEXboot Series 24AWG Cat6 550MHz UTP Ethernet Bare Copper Network Cable - Black

    Yep, I buy many of my cables from Monoprice, especially HDMI, as those are ridiculously priced at most stores. Cyberguys,com also has very good deals on cables, expecially the hard to find ones.

    My friend has not had a new PC in more than 10 years, so he was due! His part-time job just became full-time, so he had the means to get the new PC. He wanted me to build it for him based upon his requirements and he got a great deal, I had some fun and was able to help him out, so it's a "win-win". I'd like to build someone a PC every weekend, especially during the cold MI winters! You know about those, don't you?!

    I bought SimCity last night and created my 1st city. I had fun and I can see where I'll be spending some time... I guess my Win8 installation has been postponed... I haven't played a computer game since 1991 and I'm very impressed with this one!

    Hahahaha, I've been playing it since the release! It's a marvelous game. Haven't played it since SimCity 3000 World Edition. It's one hack of a game


    I'll pm you with my user name. Perhaps we can build a city together?

    That sounds great! I have to warn you, though. Whenever my citizens start complaining, I just bulldoze their houses!
