General Discussion  - 
I wired my friend's (now roommate) house with Ethernet while it was being built back in the early 2000s and, while it was forward thinking at the time, I failed to be quite forward thinking enough. Instead of wiring every room as I should have, I left a few rooms off. Notably, my bedroom. Since getting a peek in the attack recently, and noticing how ridiculously easy it would be to drop a cable from the bedroom that is wired to the one that isn't, I've decided to remedy this oversight (and my PS3 should thank me immensely).

The question I have is related to Copper Covered Aluminum vs. Solid Copper wire for stationary cabling. CCA appears to have quite the bad rap for its lack of robustness, but it is also significantly cheaper than solid copper wire. What does the community think about this? Is CCA sufficient for a cable run through an attic? Under $30 for 250ft of CAT6 cable seems like a bargain, but not if the cable will crap out.

I think it's going to depend on a few factors, how many turns the cable needs to make, (the more bends in the cable, the more chances for issues), how good the connections are and how long it needs to remain before it will be upgraded. For the short term the CCA cables will be fine, particularly in a permanent installation like a house. In the longer term, is there a chance that the cables will be upgraded to a newer standard? If so, then taking a cheaper route for the CCA would be fine, imho. Just make sure your connections are rock solid and you shouldnt have any problems with it
