Default Network cable

Hi guys, I need a 100' network cable, for Internet and watching movies through. Is this one a good choice?

This ones only 10 bucks, Will this one do the job the same as the 550mhz green one? (first link)

Any cable will do, I'm surprised they're even taking time to write reviews on network cables. The size of a cable is the only thing that matters (in terms of signal loss).

So its not like a coaxial cables? (A higher quality coaxial cable will give you a better signal)
