Monoprice are commonly recommended as the bargain reliable cables. BlueJeans has some quite good ones at higher, but still reasonable, prices. Personally, I've found that there are often huge (75% etc) discounts on new brand-name cables of all sorts on Amazon. I don't mind getting Monster if it costs the same as standard RadioShack cables!
As to SQ, I doubt anyone could distinguish Monoprice from BlueJeans from supermagical expensive ones in blind A/B listening.
Most important in my book is to get snug fitting cables of the shortest practical length and keep them routed as far away from power lines and speaker wires as possible.
