First off, welcome to the Shack.

As for quality, Monoprice, Blue Jeans Cables, Parts Express, and RAM Electronics all have good stuff.

It's not about price so much as brands you trust. Personally I start with Parts Express because I get a discount there (I'm a custom installer), but all the ones I mentioned have a good reputation. You're already well above the in-box throwaways, Radio Shack and Best Buy house brand stuff.

Good luck.

Oh, one more thing, if the store you are buying from has several "tiers" of quality to choose from, when in doubt use the larger gauge (lower number) for long runs. It is usually (but not always) of better quality (although more expensive because there's more metal).

24 gauge for DVI should be fine at 20'

That actually happens to me every time I fiddle with wires behind my video rig. The little "bump" on the dvd player hdmi cable causes a disconnect. It doesn't even feel like I do anything but then it reconnects.

HDMI -- long on concept, short on execution. :)
