Network related items - where to purchase

I am looking to buy few things to run network in my house. I have added links to home depot but these seem rather price and wanted to know if there are other stores within GTA that would carry these items.

1) Face plates (1 or 2 sockets)

2) Cat5e/6 Snap-In to create the wall socket

Thanks for all the help.

Reasonable prices, reasonable quality, lots of stores around the GTA.
Those who don't do it, don't get it.

Um, have you considered going WIRELESS? Then you won't need faceplates, or cables, or....

This was not meant for all the system just one. I was wireless and now i am moving back to wired. The reason for going wired is I am setting up a "server/hptc" system that I want other "slow" systems to Remote Desktop into. This way I can manage my files without ending up with 200000 copies of same files on different systems. So I want the system to be fast and no connection drops.

Thanks everyone for the info - unfortunately i couldn't find fish the cable through all the insulation on the wall and so I ended up just going through the floor - a cable wide hole in the corner of the floor... ;)
