What do you think of this 20m cat6a cable?

Hi, I want to run an Ethernet cable downstairs to my basement, and am looking for a decent cable. I found this one on newegg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA1NV0T67908
I am looking for gigabit Ethernet, will this be a good option? If not give me a suggestion.
Thanks.

    It will work, but Cat6a is unneeded. Cat5e will do the same for about 1/2 the price.

    75 ft. $8.65

    Thanks for all the help, I actually ended up going with this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812422713&ignorebbr=1
    Also it was 25% off, so I got it for only $10.34, after shipping :D
