I am in need of new cables and speaker wire to connect the following components, and I've apparently gotten old since the last time I rigged something like this. Please hope me?

Here are the current components:
Receiver: Yamaha RX-V665
TV: Hitachi 57F59
DVD player: Phillips DVP5960
Speakers: Acoustic Research HD150
Which (HDMI, tos) cables, how many of each type and most importantly what bloody gauges
do I need for each type? What gauge speaker wire -- I've seen everything from 12 to 18 gauge recommended elsewhere. Assume runs no longer than 8 to 12 feet. Are there other parts I need to pick up?
FWIW, I will be buying from Monoprice if they have everything needed.
Please feel free to answer as though I am not competent at this in the least, because... I'm not. Competent.
Ancillary question: Are there other components I should be looknig to add to this system? (you can laugh)
