Here's a good primer on the differences...
The cable is about the same price. Termination components are, I expect, significantly more expensive for Cat-6. So I doubt any homeowner today is going to use them, unless they have a demonstrated need for Cat-6 operation.
You're right - If I was doing new wiring now, the price difference is nominal. But I'd do a little more research on using Cat-5 termination components on Cat-6 cable before I commit.
