How long can a display port cable get before adding any type of delays or differences?

The above answer is correct.

The answer for other cable types is that you'll degrade the signal too far to want to look at it before there is an induced time lag. One nanosecond (0.000 000 000 1 sec) is 11.8 inches long. By the time you're off by 1/1000th of a second you're looking at wires over 186 miles long!

Good video on that with Grace Hopper in this link: http://highscalability.com/blog/2012/3/1/grace-hopper-to-programmers-mind-your-nanoseconds.html
