The Cat 6 cable will be a better quality cable, but unless you're expecting to be getting better than Gigabit speeds in the near future, just stick with the Cat5e for now--that's all you need. With that said, if I were buying a NEW house and wanted to future proof it, I will spend the extra cash and do 6 or 6A. OK, fine, I would run fiber optics through my walls, lol. 

 

I wired my whole house in 5e shortly after moving in and I so far I am happy.
