I'd recommend the Denon 1612 because of Audyssey MultiEQ. Very good room correction setup software. Has bass EQ capabilities if you ever decide to add a sub.
Then, you should run an HDMI cable from your computer to your receiver, then an HDMI from the receiver to the TV. If you have your cable hooked to your TV, there's also probably some kind of audio out connection from the TV that can be connected to the receiver, too, (either RCA coaxial cables or digital toslink/optical). Then you will need speaker wire. 16 gauge should be fine.
Good place for decent cables and speaker wires is Monoprice.com. Better quality stuff than what you can get for cheap on Amazon or at BestBuy.
