Question for all of you cordcutters/streamers

I'm looking to learn more about advanced networking, home theater/streaming, etc...

I tried using the search feature on the page, and while the results it yielded were relevant, they weren't truly relevant to the beginner.

My question to all of you is: is there an renowned guide/FAQ for streaming content around your house? I'd like to learn myself, as I get some of the principles, but can't quite put it all together.

For instance:

I have a tri-level home where the modem is located in the basement along with: Airport Extreme, Pioneer Vsx1021 Receiver (attached to an Airport Express), Panny Plasma, Apple TV 3, Xbox 360, PS3

On the middle floor, about 25ft away, I will have a home office consisting of a 2012 iMac, Airport Express (latest), and printer

I'd like to be able to stream my media library (in 1080p) to the TV in my basement, (as well as potentially the other 2 TVs in the house), and, I'd like to have backups on my CPU.

Is my best option to purchase a time capsule and stream from my iMac to my TV using plex and Apple TV 3? Or, should I just purchase an NAS (or MacMini server for that matter)...and if I'm going to be streaming various file types, should I have a more expandable HTPC than an AppleTV 3?

Gah, so many questions, but so many of the same (beginners) questions...which is why I figure someone has created a n00b guide, or useful FAQ/Sticky somewhere?
