I just received my Sailor Professional Gear (Ivory with Rhodium trim) and it is a great pen. The only downfall is the limited ink capacity because I want this to be my main note taking pen. Would I be better off buying some Sailor cartridges and refilling them with a syringe or should I just stick with the converter?

Yes, the cartridges hold roughly double what the converter does. :)

(I fill everything with a syringe - even some of my piston-fillers. Bottle-filling has a nice feeling, but I find it a tad messy.)

I would also say use cartridges. They hold approx. 1ml of ink. I refill all my cartridges and if I do run out, I always have an extra cartridge in case.
