Best Coxial Cable?

Hey, I currently have Northland Cable and I Queston there cabling sometimes, Well anyway I need to rerun it as I have bent it up a little. Whats the BEST cable I can get no more than 20 dollars through amazon or NewEgg? Could someone Link me to something?

Different color than black would be cool:) But doesn't really matter I seen some quadsheilded ones from AVrite but I dont know how good they are.

I need a 50ft cable

Yes that should work. Monoprice says they charge $7.91 for the same quality cablehttp://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10216&cs_id=1021603&p_id=3034&seq=1&format=2 . You would have to check on shipping cost to see if it is really a better value.

Good, last thing a big cable co is going to do is give out crappy cable.

Well its not as big lol. Its NorthLand Cable. Its just I used to have around a 5ms ping. now its like 25-40. ever since I upgraded to 12megs down it went from 3-5ms ping to 25-40 ping but I kinda think its the cable, So Should I waste 10 bucks on a quad-sheild cable? or should this cable be fine?

It looks to only be dual shield. Tri and Quad are "better" cable, but depending on your surroundings, may not benefit you. Do you have a link to this 10 dollar quad you're thinking of purchasing?

That looks like the best preformed cable I've seen, give it a shot.

after you swap cables make sure the fittings are on snug at both ends. best cable in the world wont do crap if ya leave it loose.
