I've two PCs distant 100m/300ft. one from the other.
Within a budget of $1000 what's the fastest current solution for
connecting them?
Are network cards, cables and plugs certified for 10gibabit/s Ethernet
already on the market?

100m will get you 100Mbps/1Gbps off of any fairly good NIC / switch.

Saying that IIRC when we had Cat5/5e a lot was installed at max 100m in
some places. The Cat6 was kept to 90m.

10Gb seems just a bit much for 2 PCs.

Like the 10Gb cards for servers, and some cables etc as these guys
mention

I think that gigabit is the fastest that makes sense. The hard drives
cannot read fast enough to work faster than the gigabit speed. I have gigabit,
myself.
