I've seen several studies on HDMI cables, and the consensus is that the less expensive ones work just as well as the high priced spread. Based on my experience with high frequency digital electronics and digital transmission lines, This makes sense.
If you need long runs - more than 12 feet / 4 meters, I'd worry more about it. But for the standard 3 or 6 footers, fancy doesn't buy you anything but bragging rights.
The last set I got cost me $5.50 mail order. One very good place is to check out monoprice.com. You can get a 6 footer for about $5.
