Intregrated Headset Problem

I just got a leader 730tt frame to build up as a fixed gear and I am looking for cheaper headsets (broke college kid) and I know on the site it recommends the cane creek IS6 headset, but the IS2 headset by cane creek is also integrated but cheaper, so my question is will I be able to use that headset with my frame? Thanks in advance.

Be sure to google around for the IS2. Some pretty good bargains out there.

IS2 and IS6 are compatible, quality of materials is the only difference. PricePoint has them on sale for 25 bucks.
