Upgrade to Dura Ace - Tips please!jagiger

I'm thinking of upgrading from Ultegra to DA shifters, cassette/chain, derailleurs & possibly crankset. Are there any things that I should be consider in swapping these components? Any gotcha's that I should be aware of? Any tools that would be helpful?

Also, does anyone the difference between the CS-7700 cassette & the HG cassette which I've seen on the Performance site? Thanks for your help!!

THe biggest improvement will be the shift levers. If the other stuff is not worn out, keep using it. If bothe cassettes are Shimano, the 7700 has some Ti cogs, the Ultegra is a better buy unless you are a weight geek.
