Ethernet cables

Hey all wanted to see what cables you thought/think are best to run for gaming. I have a 75 foot run to a ps4. It’s run under the house and off the ground. Cat5,6,7? Any particular brand? I have 300mbps and have plans to go to 1000 in the next few months.

Re: Ethernet cables

Cat5 wouldn't support it. Cat5e would.

So would cat6-7. 

I'd probably go at least cat 6 if it was me. It supports 10g speeds up to 55m. so if you upgraded in the future, you'd have no problem hitting the 75ft run with it at 10g speed.
