Going to wire my house- CAT6a?

Networking, Media Servers & Content Streaming - www.avsforum.com
The main purpose is to be able to stream 1080p Blu Ray rips to different media players throughout the house. I will be running 3 or 4 cat6 cables into the attic and then down the walls into 3 bedrooms. All of the destinations will reach the switch within 100ft so I am just going to get 100ft patch cables, so I don't have to connect the end jacks. I did that once, what a PITA.

Keeping "future proof" in mind, would you guys recommend I run CAT6? or CAT6a? Again, the main purpose is BR rip streaming, but it would also be nice to have the speed when transferring files across the network. Theoretically I could even do CAT5e, but I would ideally like to do this once, due to how uncomfortable it is going to be up in the attic.

And it's starting to get coooooold in NY .avs-threads-first-post-500x50 { width: 500px; height: 50px; } '); }
