How good do you want (price and quality)? How much looking have you
done on your own? If you stay away from Radio Shack and places like
Circuit City you'll find that they're close enough in price and
quality that unless you're buying a hundred or so, it's not worth
agonizing over the differences, but just buy what's easiest for you.

We get good prices on them from Beach Audio. For example, we have used
a lot of these (as well as longer versions):

Click on the picture in the bottom of the above link, and there are 1 m
cables for $3.00 each on sale, also in different colors:

Probably sufficient quality at Radio Shack or Circuit City on this kind
of item. Just way over-priced.

Radio Shack 15-1060: 3 ft, $15.
Radio Shack 15-1061: 6 ft, $20.
Radio Shack 15-1062: 12 ft, $25.

And I've got scope shots showing my cheap 2 meter cable from Circuit
City with same amount of jitter as 1 meter ILS100 Monster Cable.
