I've lost track, where does Cat5E stack up? Aren't we at 7 or something? I need a new Ethernet cable for my new computer...

Think twice, no 3 times, before you use cat7 at home.

shielded cable like most cat7 must be grounded. Most home equipment (switch, router) don't ground the 8p8c connector. So you will either end up with an antenna along your run or a low pass filter blocking high frequency.
