Default 4k hdmi...

If I buy a 4k HDMI cord now, will I notice a difference on my 1080p tv, and which one is best, quality wise?

Just make sure any cable you buy is rated "High Speed". These should handle HDMI 2.0, Level B (10.2 Gbps). For long runs you may want to consider cables with Redmere because the cable will have a smaller diameter.

Can existing HDMI cables support the higher bandwidths of HDMI 2.0 Specification?
Yes, existing High Speed HDMI Cables (wire only) will support the new higher bandwidths (up to 18Gbps).

HDMI 2.0 specification defined a new, more efficient signaling method, for speeds above 1.4b limits (10.2Gbps), to allow higher bandwidths (up to 18Gbps) over existing High Speed HDMI Wire Cables.

Amazon Basics provides quality cables at a good price.
