Another really helpful reply, given he obviously wants a long cage and trigger shifters. Then again, all necessary information is available at http://weightweenies.starbike.com/listings but I can't be bothered working out the answer myself.
If you remove the shifter indicators of the LX shifters, then the Shimano will be the lighter setup by a decent amount (maybe 30grams?).

But Sram shifts better:)

The derailer is about the same, both usually average about 250-260g, the shifters are a little lighter, the X9s are about 300g by themselves (lighter without the cables, but traditionally shifters are measured with the cables). Remove the indicators from the LX they are even lighter of course. I weighed my LX pods without the indicators and they are within 5g of the XO triggers.

Total weight saved, not an extraordinary amount, like around 30-60g or so...
