Default Electronics Change (Whats your opinion)

We have started to fish in deep water (1000ft+). My current setup is not powerful enough I believe. I dont have good bottom detail. I have an Nav Net VX-2 plotter /sounder which I updated from a VX-1 last year. I have the Furuno DFF1 Sounder box and a Airmar B260 Transducer. I have thought of ways of upgarding and not to spend a boat load of money. Here are my choices I am down to:

1. Keep my VX-2 and upgrade to a DFF-3 and a Airmar R209 Transduder.

2. Buy a Simrad NSE 12 with a Chirp sounder box and a 509LH Chirp Transducer

Opinions- Ideas?

I deep drop in usually 700-1500 ft of water
