Default new electronics help

so i just picked up a new to me 1995 272 GradyWhite sailfish. The boats current electronics are pretty well out dated and needing replacement for what i want to do.

I will come out and say i am pretty much a raymarine fan inside and out. i was originaly going to put on (2) E90W with radar and sounder and call it quits until i hearded that raymarine is coming out with a new E model the E7.

My question is this: the new E7 are the "newest" tech and cost half of a E90W but will the size of the screen be an issue? i am not old (younger the 30) but like to split screens to see as much possible. as far as wireless and ipod connection i think are a gimmick and dont see much navigation aid to be gained from it. would i be better with the E7 or the E90W?

I said earlier that i am a big raymarine fan but that being said the new Simrad echo sounder seems to good to be true. would it be worth it to have say (2) E__and (1) simrad screen with the echo sounder just to pick up the bottom when i get to my spot? i am a diver and going down 150' just to find out that i through the mark out on a sand bed is not very fun. what is the difference between the simrad NSS7 and the NSE8 besides an extra inch in screen size.

thank you!
