Shimano cassettes XT and Dura Ace

Hi
I am just getting into XC riding and I want to change the rear gearing to something like 11-23 for more choice at higher speed. Can I swap the current XT for Dura Ace or Ultegra does anybody know?

Yes the freehub body is the same. You might want to check out the SRAM R-9 It's lighter than 'teg and costs less than DA.
