That depends on the quality of the VGA signal of your computer, the cable itself and the projector.

In your case, with a 5m long cable, I would only use a screen resolution of 1024x768 pixels. Higher resolutions will likely work but especially things like small fonts will be displayed blurry.
No, you won't have a problem with the 5m long cable.

I have been using 15m long cable and everything was OK. Only thing that you should consider is that cable must be with good shield on longer distances (10+). Normally, that kind of VGA cable is fatter then normal one.
