for any monitor i've always used whatever DisplayPort or HDMI the manufacturer includes.
this way you know for absolute sure that this cable will fit the needed revision for necessary bandwidth.
for TVs, the same for a basic receiver or cable box.
just manufacturer provided.
now for long distance high resolution, high refresh rate, HDR connectivity it's a completely different story.
you would need a very high quality HDMI 2.1 cable that, depending on the length, may need to be fiber optic.
these can be very expensive depending on the length necessary.
