I seem to recall the initial question being wether ReiserFS or XFS would
provide the most performance benefit. Nobody's been able to give a
definitive answer to that question, but considering that either requires
a backup/restore, changing the hardware doesn't require much additional
work, just time to get it delivered.

and cheaper. Pick any two.

Your temporary financial embarrassment will be relieved in a surprising manner.
