Numerous computer magazines have tested and proven that even the cheapest HDMI cables work just fine and the same with Cat5. Why not spend less than $5 to get both a 6’ HDMI cable and a 50’ Spool of Cat5e?

Not worth it in my opinion, save the money and buy cheap cables. Amazon.com pretty much has them the cheapest I have found anywhere.
