5m USB extension with wired gaming mouse. Will it cause problems?

I've just put 4*USB extensions around the side of my room (concealed within cable magic) so I can use a wired mouse & keyboard at my desk rather than wireless.

Will I notice any difference in gaming i.e. Lag in FPS games?

The cables are not active repeaters.

Thanks.

There may be lag and they should be active repeaters, run with it first see how it feels, but if response is sluggish at least you know what to do.
