I already have Xbuntu installed on /dev/sda1/ but i would like to install Windows 7 now on /dev/sdb2. My goal is to manually set boot priority in my BIOS to boot from either one. So my question is, by installing Windows 7 on sdb2 will i still be able to boot from sda1 if i select it as primary boot drive in BIOS, or will it still wipe my MBR and Grub2 on sda1?

It will wipe grub and you will have to reinstall it.See this. (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2#Reinstalling from LiveCD)

Thats what i figured, i have come accross that guide before but figured if i had it on a whole other drive i might not have to do it. Thanks.
