Default HDMI cable advice

I just picked up a HP 720p hdtv I am going to get the hd box from comcast tomorrow.

I was told that I should use a HDMI cable instead of the rca cables.
So i began looking online for them and noticed how cheap they were selling but then there were a few that were very expensive.

range i found $3 to $150
So i was wondering if anyone could recommend a good cable at a resonable price. Im not looking to get the cheapest but im not looking to throw money out the window.

Guage?!?! Screw the guage - it's digital data, no power issues and at reasonable lenghts (up to 20/30') no need to worry about cable losses.

For 720p (or 1080i or 1080p for that matter) probably does not matter whether you use component cables or HDMI, PQ will be the same. Only differences are that HDMI cable is a bit smaller and less abtrusive, while the component cables are a bit bulkier but provider more robust connectors with little likelihood of breaking or pulling out.
