OK....so ive done the research and everyone says go with monoprice HDMI cables. Not worth spending hundreds on monster cables.....ok fine. BUT.....which of these many cables do I choose from?>??

I have a Samsung LN-T4066f with HDMI version 1.3

thats about all I know

here is the HDMI cable version 1.3 page on monoprice. How do I know which to buy???

I only need one cable at this time approx 4ft

and lastly.....whats the difference between these monoprice cables?? I see 24AWG, 28AWG, ferite cores, category 2.....what does all this mean and which cable(s) should I be looking at??? :what:

At only 4 ft., any of the 1.3 HDMI rated cables will do the trick.

The point is it doesn't matter. With digital signals either you get the signal or you don't. The only reason for a thicker (lower number gauge) cable would be for the length of the run, other than that there is no difference. A larger gauge cable will not make the signal any better.
