Looking for black VGA cables

Hello. My PSU (1000W P2 Plat by EVGA) came with black cables and red cables. Well, I don't have any red in my case and rather vainly I want to have all my cables be black to fit the overall color scheme. Thus, I need 4 cables that connect from my PSU to my graphics cards that are black or even white.

Here are two options I identified:

1) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA24G31E0317

2) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812162033

Option 1 includes a whole new set of all the cables for the PSU but costs around 90 dollars. Option 2 is just the VGA cables (I would have to buy four of em I think) but it would still be cheaper at around 35 dollars. So, what is the better option? I guess I am asking if option 2 will be compatible with my PSU and graphics cards and work properly, since it is not specific to my PSU like option 1. Thank you very much for your help!

I'm sorry sometimes I need to hear things multiple times for them to sink in. I appreciate your help very much. Could you offer a rationale for your recommendation, just so I better understand? I was leaning towards the silverstone to save some money. Thank you.

extensions are a half measure. the sleeving on the silverstone extensions looks nice, but frays easily. I'm using white ones right now. using them may also lower performance a bit, especially since the cables on the G2/P2/T2 psus is part of the platform design (there are solid capacitors in the cable on your power supply that improve ripple supression). it's a big cost gap so the extensions are temping, just isn't the very best option.

edit: the custom sleeve kit doesn't have the capacitors in the cables anyway.
