Gold plated S-video cable?

Hey, I just picked up a gold plated S-video cord. When I got home I found out that I had a S-video cable in my room. Does the gold one make a difference? Thanks.

It's not as much a difference in picture quality as it is the gold connectors won't corrode, which in the long run, will degrade picture quality. Also just FYI if you have a cable with good build quality you can run a couple a hundred feet with no signal loss.

Isn't that taking things a little too far (literally?).

Well yes in a normal situation but I have seen setups where there are cable runs more than a hundred feet.
