I would think it would not matter much as long as you didn't split the signal many times. Of course I am in no way a cable guy.
Cable quality matters to a certain extent, like I've said earlier. For short distances (3'-12') the quality of the cable can be negligible, but for longer distances (20'-50') the shielding of the cable really has an effect on the signal quality. Improperly shielded cables can result in a multitude of picture problems.

Analog signals (component, VGA) are much easier to work with for longer distances, simply because you can easily carry a signal over a 50' cable. You'd be hard pressed to do that with a digital signal (HDMI, DVI) without an amplifier or some other sort of signal distribution.
Stop the genocide now.
