Which ethernet cable to pick.

So I just finished my first computer build. I just need to get it in my room and get the internet all set up. I want it wired so ethernet is the way to go, I'm just not sure about which brand or what type to get. Cat6 or Cat5?? I don't know the difference. The cable is going to need to be at least 100 ft maybe even more than that. So any help with brand and type would be much appreciated.
