Cat 5e - UTP or FTP or does it matter?

I want to hard wire an Xbox and an additional PC to my router. This will require cable runs of around 15m each, which in the main will run through the loft and the inside of partition walls.

I'm a little confused about the different types of Cat5e cable and whether for this basic setup I need to incur the additional expense of a shielded cable.In the main I can route the network cables away from the house power/light circuits.

Can anyone offer any guidance?

I have the normal network (RJ45) cabling without shielding, in my house wired to my sons XBox from the main PC without any problems.
