That cable would probably be fine, although it is kinda long (6 feet). I'd recommend a shorter one, assuming you are just gonna run from your PC to the DAC sitting close by. Something in the realm of 1.5 to 3 ft. would be ideal, UNLESS you need it to be longer.

 

Here's one on Monoprice that is 1.5 ft. long and very cheap: http://www.monoprice.com/Product?c_id=103&cp_id=10303&cs_id=1030301&p_id=5436&seq=1&format=2

I own those cables and they're great, although they are a little expensive. Schiit makes those specifically for connecting their products, which is why they are so short and the perfect size to run from a DAC to an amp.

 

You can try searching on Google, but the shortest common size is 1.5 feet. It's up to you if the size difference matters enough to pay about $20 more.
