Ethernet Cable Advice needed. Thank you :]

Hi, I've recently gotten the 1GB package and have the Hub4 set up downstairs. I used to run a 20m Vandesail Cat7 up to my ps4pro but my cat has used it as a chew toy lol so I'll have to get a new cable soon. I was wondering if anyone knows what the very best cable I should be using for this setup? Does frequency (MHz) matter, if so how many (MHz) would be best suited? Cat7 or Cat8?

The prices don't go up too much tbh from 10-20 bucks. I saw some cat 8 cables with 2000mhz frequency and some cat7 cables with 600mhz. I'm not too broadband savvy so I was wondering if any of this makes a difference? I'm looking to get the most out of this 1gbps and maybe future proof it for the Ps5, u know.
