Considering Gigabit ethernet runs fine over 5e - I'm not sure 5e+ is worth
the extra price.

It also depends on how many jacks you're wiring in your house and your
budget. If you're wiring 10 jacks - 15% isn't that much more to pay. But if
you're going to have 50 - 60 jacks...  that's a different story : )
