Why do you want cat 5? why not Cat 5e or cat 6 to allow for gigabit in the future? I am assuming that it is going through a wall or something so you may as well allow for upgrades in the future?

yea but you said for pc as well, and GB routers are common place now (if buying new) and almost all pc's have gb now, just pointing it out as for the cost of a couple of quid it saves re doing it at some later date.
