Cat-5e is enhanced Cat-5 cable. The only difference between the two UTP cables is the tested signal level. Cat-5e is tested at a higher frequency or signal level than regular Cat-5. You could find Cat-5 and Cat-5e anywhere for about the same price. Getting Cat-5e means you are getting cable that is tested under higher standards.
