I have the chance to pick up a 100 gal tank! What type of filter system and heater will I need?

for the heater, get at least 5 watts per gallon or 3 watts per titanium heater. One with a digital thermomoter also is good.

As far as filters are concerned, you can get an aqua clear 500 and some type of bio filtration ilke an eheim canister filter. that will work well. If you want to spend some more cash, get a wet/dry filter. Thats just my my opinion though. There are many other ways to achieve good filtration.

Id use a canister(Eiheim 2126) or an AC 802 powerhead w/ prefilter mixed with an AC 500. Two 250 Watt Ebos and Two thermometers to check balance of temps on either side of the tank.

Nah, actually the electric bill came and I have to reduce power. Im going ghetto for now. Took out the AC 500 and AC 802, and only running the FilStar XP3.
But what I suggested is one of the best ways to clean and keep your tanks water crispy clean!!
