Networking Mac, iphone, and LG Smart TV's + other stuff

We will be moving into our new house shortly and I am wanting to set up an wireless network which will consist of the follow accessing it.
iMac - 2.4 GHz Intel Core Duo with 2 GB of Ram running on Lion, 320 Gig HD with a 500 Gig partitioned external HD for Time Machine backups and extra storage (iMac will be acting as the Plex Media Server)
2 x 4G iPhones with iOS 5 (with Plex app for TV's below)
and 2 LG smart TV's (Plex app to hopefully stream media from iMac)
I do not have a router as yet as the internet company wanted to charge me $69 for one, so I thought I would get one else where cheaper OR use one of the Airport devices instead (pay a bit more).
My question is if I wish to set up a wireless network to house the above with one of the main functions to stream from the iMac to the LG TV's, what would be best?
Like I said I do not yet have a wireless router so the answers will have to take this into consideration, and I am very keen to set up a media server using PLEX
Would an Airport Express to the job as I have less than 10 items to be managed in a 'small area' (the office and lounge room a next to one another).
Airport Extreme... just in case I have other people or items to use the network.
Or a Time Capsule to utilise the hard disk as the media server and keep the existing external HD for Time Machine Backups.
Can this be done, or am I just living in the land on nod?
Cheers in advanced.

Yes with either of them but you will have more coverage and options with either the AEBS
or the TC.
