I found some cat6 on monoprice that's cheap. I can get 1 50ft strand of cat 6 and 7 small 5ft cables for about 20$ good deal for me. Sounds good to me. Monoprice it is.

So I finally got a question for my fellow duders. I am trying to figure out what type of network cable to setup for my house. I have a verizon FIOS modem w/ a gigabit connection (56-60mbps down/30-40mbps up) and a Netgear ProSafe 8 Port Gigabit Switch. I will be connecting the PC, PS3 and 360 directly to the FIOS router and the xbox one, ps4, 360 and wiiU to the switch box. I want to say they all are using cat5 but I think some cat5e are thrown into the mix of cables I have now. I want to know what the best setup would be for this. Cat6 or just cat5e? I need at least 100ft of one to go from bedroom pc/router to the switchbox in the living room but all others would need to be about 6-10ft or less. Curious what you guys have tested an also what places you buy cables from. I have seen tons on amazon and such but the reviews all say they are not the cables you think you are buying lol. So thought I would ask my fellow dudes!
I know I know... This topic has been done to death but hey I like many other people are looking for answers. I have two televisions in mind after doing some research, watching reviews and even looking at them in store I am still torn as to what TV to get. The two televisions I am currently looking into are the Panasonic TC-P50S60 50-Inch 1080p 600Hz Plasma HDTV and the VIZIO M501d-A2R 50-Inch 1080p 240Hz 3D Smart LED HDTV. I have looked into Input lag on both of these TV's based off CNET's Best low-lag HDTVs for serious gamers guide and found both to be under 40ms. While that all sounds awesome I am just not sure which route to go. Both have ups and down and I have a budget of around $800-900 bucks. Curious if anyone has these TV's and can shed some more light on how you feel they perform. Also any other suggestions are helpful.
Things I have for next gen..
Current TV: sony bravia kdl-55ex500 (will be giving to my parents since there TV just went out)
Home Theatre: Onkyo HT-S3500 5.1 surround sound home theater set
Consoles: PS4 and Xbox1
Well, I have been saving up to get a new TV for the xbox one and the ps4 and was curious if anyone on the GB crew had some recommendations. I was trying to spend about 600-800 if I could. I currently own a KDL-55EX500 but I want to get a new LEDTV for the new consoles. I saw a few suggestions online but was curious what you guys got.
120hz or higher
42" or larger
So I have been growing out my beard since Ryan's passing to show my support to a great man. I had a small stubble going for awhile but I havnt touched a razor since that faithful day. I hope to grow it out for a year or maybe longer. Curious to see if others have started to show support in the same way and maybe we can start documenting all of this.
I miss you Ryan and fuck you! :)
