You should really ask this question in the HDMI forum because you will get a better response. However, at 5m (15') any passive, high speed HDMI cable will work depending on the type of signal you are trying to push. 4k, 4:4:4 @60Hz is very problematic for most. Anything other than that, the above mentioned cable should work just fine. Be mindful of bend radius and wire gauge. You can also use an active cable with Redmere technology. There is nothing magical about an active cable other than you can run it at longer lengths than a passive cable because of the error correction and timing chipsets in the sink end (tv side).

Here's the question?
Does your PC have a HDMI output or is it VGA.


1) No HDMI on PC video card? Look to get a new card.
2) PC has VGA out only? Then just use VGA from PC to the projector since it has a VGA input.

Monster and Audioquest make good cables but they are typically way overpriced. There are other cables that perform just as well for a lot less money. It's all marketing and slick packaging. If the cable can sufficiently pass the signal without any issues then that's as good as you're going to get. The cable can not make a digital signal (audio or video) any better than it already is.
