Default New, high-end rifle for graduation?

I have graduation coming up soon, and I want to get a really really REALLY good rifle. It needs to be extremely reliable, semi-auto, ergonomic, have a nice profile. Must fire .223/5.55X45mm NATO.

What I had in mind:

FN SCAR 16s
FN Fs2000
Bushmaster ACR
H&K SL8
Steyr AUG
Customize an AR-15 I already have
Something else of the like, that you recommend.

Which one would you pick, and why?
Would you avoid any of these, and why?

I appreciate the help.

how about building an AR15 from the ground up.. adding the "match" parts you want... it solves the well i like this but not this problem.
buy a stripped lower to start, and add parts from there like, triggers, stock, upper assembly.

doing this would probly end up being the second cheapest... overhaulingyour current would be the cheapest..

I have extremely good ARs. I don't like the gas system. That's one of the reasons I said re-build these. It was also suggested I build ground-up. I want to put a lot of magpul stuff on it of I do that.
