A couple things. 

1. the ex6120 only has a 10/100mbps port. its not gigabit. So wired in, you'll max out around that 90-94mbps. 

2. extenders cut throughput by 50% for single/dual band extenders. Reason why is they have to use the same chip to go router----extender and then extender-----device. And they can't do both at once. Hence the 50% speeed loss of what speed they're picking up. 

3. 2.4ghz is much slower than 5ghz. but 5ghz signal drops off quickly with distance and obsructions.

I'd say more of a dream. 100ft is quite a ways. even with the EX8000 having a 1733mbps backhaul, by the time you get signal attenuation from a 100ft distance and then obstructions and then add in the overhead from wireless, its not going to hit 1gig. But it'd offer you the best chance at it. 

100ft is quite a distance, especially for 5ghz. 

but something to keep in mind is that most games/streaming doesn't need near 1gig speeds. Even a 4k signal only needs 25-40mbps on average.
