There have been more than enough discussions on SRAM and Sh!tmano over
the past few months for you to make a decision. No need to rehash it.
Just google the group on those two items.

Oh and SRAM rules!

I suspect the OP was asking this from ignorance. Within the Shimano
mountain biking components, yes, XTR is the "highest" level. But as
RAL pointed out, there are other brands. Well, one other brand,
anyway.
