Stay away from CCA cables. They are extremely fragile and terrible. Go for copper.

Yeah, what he said. Stay away from CCA unless you want problems later.

Running cables (in a proper way) is labor-intensive hence expensive and as such using the best cable you can afford is advisable. Cat5e is last century technology so unless you plan to replace cables in the next few years and pay way more considering labor, I would not use it even in residential installation. CCA is also something to stay away from.

I agree, I am looking to get my house wired and planning to go 6a. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Micro.../308624933

Over the next 10 years that $100 difference isn't going to matter.
