5 strands if overkill. You will need bags of insulators and not the cheap ones. They are not weather resistant and often break within a year. Three strands is plenty, the top and bottom are hot while the middle is the ground wire. My posts are about 30' apart so the wire moves in the wind. Horses don't like it and will remain farther away from the wire. I do use 5 posts at the corners so there is strong bracing, otherwise the corner posts will move inward from the tension.

Insulated tubing, cheap, staples hold them in place, and UV resistant.

Are you owning or renting the place where you are going to fence? You may want to check into what is accepted practise in your area with regard to making improvements to property. If it's rented, it may be expected that it's left behind; if it's owned it should be down before being advertised or specifically identified as removed before possession so there's no surprises to the buyer.
