the easiest way is to pick one groupset, ie shimano xt or SRAM x7 and use that for the entire drivetrain, i prefer to have x9/x0 shifter derailleur, SRAM cassette and KMC chains, its all personal preference

RANDOM THOUGHT:
What's wrong with your 8 speed setup?
If it were me, I'd just be replacing the 8 speed (with 8 speed). You can still get XT 8 speed cassettes which are as good as anything else on the market, if that's too spensy go with a deore.
8 speed is bulletproof :thumbsup:

It doesn't happen often, but sometimes - just sometimes, I can chime in with something useful...

Sram PG-850 cassette and chain, cheap and perfectly functional, and the sram chain comes with the nifty powerlink in case you can be bothered taking it off to clean it.
