Need some help on a new build!!

Hi All

I was hoping that someone could help me, i am now building a new TT bike (cervelo P2C Frame) and would like some help on the gears.

I would like to put Dura ace 7900 on the bike but it's quite expensive and would like to know is it really worth the money compared to Ultegra SL?

The Crank is a zipp 300.

Thanks in advance

    I have no personal experience of Shimano, but everything I read/hear about Ultegra is good, it's just not Dura Ace (similar to Chorus and Record).

    I think the Ultegra will be fine, but with a P2C and Zipp chainset would merit the extra expense, a bit like buying a Saille Row suitbut wearing a M&S shirt!?

    SRAM red is the top of the line stuff, and I have it and it is awesome! Next level down is the force, which used to be their top line one, and the new 2010 grouppo is sub 2kg. However, it might be cheaper to shop around for Dura-ace 7800, still get the tech but at a much cheaper price
