Video Cable, Can It be Extended

I would like to relocate my computer chassis but the monitor cables have it well tethered. Is it "reasonably possible" to extend those cables without loosing image quality?

Depends on how far you wish to extend by and the type of cable, I have used both HDMI and VGA cables of 5 Metres without issues - I actually replace the cable rather than extend, and also avoid "bargain" cables

Will this cable work to extend coaxial cable for cable box?
Getting a new TV and placing it in a different spot than where the old TV is and I realized the coaxial cable coming from the wall isn't going to reach the new location for cable box's "Cable IN" connection. Can I use this as an extension? It looks right to me but I just want to be sure.
