Lowe's. Hands Down. I got a 1000ft box for around $60 about a year ago.

Edit: Looking on the box for price since it was on clearance when I got it.

Looking to crimp them yourself? Then yeah, just hunt around the web for a spool of 1000m ethernet cable and RJ-45 heads.

If you want pre-made, you could probably get away with cables from a dollar-store.... At least, that's what I did. Picked me up a bunch of 6/10/15/25-ft CAT5e cables and they all run very well. No problems peaking out at about 800mbits/sec between servers.

I would check ebay for big bulk boxes of cat5e or cat6 cable.

Then I would buy a crimp tool, RJ-45 connectors on monoprice for really cheap then buy some wall plates w/ modular jacks

This is what my dad did for our house. He found a bunch of boxes (spools) of Cat5e wiring somewhere, and he simply used that as wiring.
