i don't think i need this stuff. but am wondering what it is.
How long is your cable run? Is it going to be accessible later on if the cable goes bad and you need to replace it?
Generally, I use Monoprice HDMI cables that are 22AWG. They are very thick, and don't bend easily, but they are a robust product. I've used them with 1080p/60 material at 75' without issue which is well beyond what they are rated to (on paper) at that distance.
But, if this is going into an unfinished space, and then you are finishing it behind drywall, then make sure you add 1-2 pieces of cat-5e/6 cabling so that if the HDMI cable ever is damaged or doesn't work, you can go with a HDBaseT solution.
