Speed is irrelevant especially with only a gigabit router.
In practice, a well made cat 5e cable can support 10Gbps speeds at a short distance.

most ethernet cables you buy from a store/online are not even up to specifications e.g using copper clad aluminum instead of solid copper for the cables and in the case of those flat ethernet cables, no shielding, no cable twist to prevent crosstalk etc
I still go challenger buy $28 x 2 pcs. 1 pc to connect modem anothee to router. Waste money close to 400 buck see no difference from my old Asus router my heart pain.
