Gyroscope for DIY turtlebot

I'm gathering the parts to build a turtlebot. I have a question about the gyroscope that's use on it though. I already have a board with a gyroscope on it from another project. The gyro I have talks through I2C. Would it be easy to use this one or should I just buy the same board that everyone else uses?

I'm just starting out so I'm not even sure where to find the code for the turtlebot that processes the gyro data.

Looks like the Turtlebot uses an analog gyroscope (from JonW's links)? Unfortunately, my gyro is digital but it should be easy just to add any analog one to the create.
