2 amp circuit what wire?
 
i want to run a dedicated 20amp circiut for a window air condition, is 12 gauge wire ok to run? and for the outlet can i use a 20amp 125volt or do i need a 20 amp 120 volt?

12 ga = 20 amp.

110, 115, 118, 120, are all the same thing. I don't know if I've ever seen something marked 125 volt.

the outlets at hd for rated 20 amp said 125v on them. the 15amp ones said 15a/120v and the 20 amp ones say 20a/125v.

120 125 volts, they don't matter.

120, 125. Whatever it takes.

Receptacles are rated 125V or 250V; not 120, 240 or some other number.
Commercial devices can be higher but that has no bearing here.
