Gear cables

I’m planning on a good service for my Specialized Allez very soon so I’d like to get the bits together so I’m all ready. It’s got a Tiagra groupset and I want to change the rear cassette, chain, gear cables and brake cables.
Where should I go to get the best prices as opposed to being ripped off?

TIA.

    After trying the budget versions which work but don't last long I plumped to spend the extra couple of quid for Jagwire Slick. Well worth the little extra IMO.
    Campagnolo version but a Shimano must be available? https://www.wiggle.co.uk/jagwire-pro-slick-polished-inner-gear-cable/
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    Are all the ends (nipples) the same?

    I guess not. That would explain the ones I got being Campagnolo specific. I had a quick look but went down a wormhole of expensive kits. Best you research properly.
