Best or decent headset for new Trek Frame

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Best or decent headset for new Trek Frame

Just got a Trek Emonda ALR frameset I'm building up custom. Wanted to ask opinions on headsets to get for it. The size I need is integrated, cartridge bearing, sealed, 1-1/8˝ top, 1.5˝ bottom. Was checking out the FSA line up. Wanted to ask if anyone can suggest anything.

Thanks... would you recommend just taking my headset out my old frame and using that or buy a new one?
