Default Longest monitor cable

I've got a client who will be running dual monitors on a PC. One of the monitors will be about 50ft away. If I purchase a 75ft or 100ft monitor cable, will the picture become distorted? Thanks.

A bit maybe, dunno. If it would distort really bad they wouldn't sell them I guess.

The quality isnt as good, but i think they also make little boxs that boost the signal along that cable....
