I don't believe CAT 5 can handle Gigabit Ethernet. You might want to opt for CAT 5e or if possible, CAT 6.

Everything I've seen says that Cat5e is acceptable for gigabit but that cat6 is preferred. I do know that standard cat5 is only acceptable for 100mbit.

I'll agree with that! If you're talkng more than 50-yard distances, Cat5 won't be stable, so you should go with Cat6, but for short runs it should be all right.
