Windows 7: looking for a 8' display port cable

looking for a 8' display port cable

Moved my desk and added another desk (so I can work on other computers, and my airsoft guns). I'm in the process of getting all the cables where I need them to go and I need a shorter display port cable for the center display. The length is 8 feet and I can't find one.

I went to MicroCenter and now I'm looking at cablestogo.com and monoprice.com.

It appears that displayport cables jump from 6' to 10' (don't ask me why). You may have to settle for using a 10' cable and coil up or otherwise tuck away the excess length. I found these:

These are from reputable companies (although I'm currently boycotting Monoprice because they claim they can't provide both tracking numbers when they ship using UPS Mail Innovations).
