The Benq w6000 will give you the option to do a bigger screen easier, you can find them under $1500 sometimes. The other option is the Epson 8350, it will also let you, but it is an LCD instead of a DLP.
You can do the 120" screen with the Mits hc4000 in your room (as long as nothing is in the way of course), but you'd have to mount the bottom of the screen only 12" from the floor due to your 8-foot ceilings, most people prefer a screen mounted at least 24" from the floor. For me it wouldn't bother me much having the screen that low though.
You should buy the projector first, and then buy the screen after you figure out exactly how you want to do it.
BTW, you can do a 120" 2.35 screen (CIH) instead of 16:9 with the Mits hc4000 without an anamorphic lens, and still keep the bottom of the screen 2 feet above the floor.
Try out my calculator in my signature for some additional help, it has the Mits hc4000 in it.
