TV sets usually use 1080p resolution. So if you're sure to do gaming on that you can scale your PC for it. Of course you could connect your notebook to the TV too.

2000$ are way too much. Not counting the monitor you'll be hard pressed to spend 1000$. You could even get away with 600$ and a few compromises.

What you need are an Intel i5 or i7 CPU, the latter has no advantage for gaming, a mainstream mainboard, 16 GB RAM, a brand name PSU, an SSD, a HDD, a Blu-Ray writer (a DVD-RW would do too - but why save 50$?), a case and maybe a gaming sound card (only if your surround set is good enough).
A below 250$ graphic card should be enough for 1080p. Upgrading it after 2 years is easy. The rest doesn't really have to be upgraded.

"Cordless" and "silent" are optional and not really expensive. More a matter of clever choices.
