Dura Ace except the cassette and chain. Use an Ultegra cassette and a SRAM chain. If you go for 9 speed then use an Ultegra bottom bracket. Calipers are another place you can substitute Ultegra without losing too much in performance.

DA crank & bottom bracket, DA shifters, ultegra brakes, ultegra front del, DA rear del, ultegra cassette, DA chain. Its the best savings for the cost and weight.
There are two things Shimano is notorious for not doing as well as they could. Chains & Chainrings. SRAM & TA are far better in terms of wear and tear. If you're using 10 speed then Connex or Wippermann.
