I'd stay away from Monster. Planet waves are good cables at a reasonable price.

If you really want the best cable, go to lavacable.com and get a 20 foot van den Hul for $300.

Live wire cables work fine as well, and they have the same lifetime warranty as monster cables without the inflated price tag.

I bought one monster cable to see if it made a difference it doesn't. Not in tone, not even in amount of interference. Livewires are nice because GC stocks them and they have a lifetime guarantee, but most cheap cables should work fine, assuming they're not radio-shack quality.

For the most part, a cable is a cable. Of course you cant compare a $9 to a $30+ one...

But, for 99% of the time...your standard 20' $12 will work fine.

Now, if you have all pro gear (and I mean ALL top end gear) then yeah, you might as well spend the extra bucks on a nice cable.

LiveWire
Planet Waves
Ibanez makes a really good one but I cant remember the name of it
Monster

...etc.

Pretty much anything $30 and over is going to be good quality.
