Hey everyone I am planning to buy a intergrated headset to replace my standard hearset. Is it possible to remove the standard cups and put in the intergrated headset?

no, you have to have a frame with a headtube made for an integrated headset. an integrated headset will never work on your bike.

get a Solid headset, they rule.

I don't have $50 to shell out, its there other headsets that are cheaper and work really well. (unsealed?)

unsealed regular headsets, in my experience, SUCK.
i have owned 4 reg headsets that were unsealed:
fsa pig (x2).
cane creek.
aheadset.
on the pig and the aheadset, the bearings went to complete shit within 3 months.
on the cane creek i literally SHEARED the part of the cup that holds the bearing off of the part that sits inside the headtube (front end case, not a hard one at all though).
just get a sealed ciari or solid.
save your money, youll be spending more in the long run if you buy unsealed, they really are crap imo.

Either get sealed or new frame, as I have standard, I know that they suck :D

Edit : FSA Pig DH Pro (or something) is sealed and is pretty cheap.
