Advice Needed on A7Siii and External Recorders

I need to record at 4K, 120, 4:2:2.

I know that I need the CFexpress card to do so internally. But the 160 Gig card is $400. It's not cheap so I was thinking that perhaps I should just go with an external recorder like the Shogun so that I can have a harddrive, along with the monitor and XLR inputs. Yes, this is $1200 but that's why I'm looking for advice. Im confused as to the Shogun's recording. It's listed at 4K, 60, 4:2:2, but someone told me that their recent firmware upgraded the 60 framerate to 120....so it will be able to record exactly at the settings that I need. But does the A7siii output at these settings, or can it only record internally at these settings?

My other issue with the CFexpress card is the size. If Im recording internally at 4K, 120, 4:2:2, with the highest codec, how many minutes can I record with 160 Gigs?

Any advice is greatly appreciated.
