[amsat-bb] Need advice : Eggbeater antenna, preamp, coax

I would like to know if there is much difference using a preamp for 
satellite receiving using a M2 Eggbeater antenna ?

And also, is there much difference between a heliax 0.5"  and a RG-8 on 
a 50 feet cable run between the antenna and the radio ?

I would really like to optimize my receiving quality but I also want to 
know where to put all my effort first.

I'm new and I cannot invest much money the first year.

Thank to all for your advice.
