cam bearing question

Hey guys I just got my 406 back from the machine shop finally!!!

I was origonally planning on using a F/T cam, but now i think I'd like to go with a roller. Is there any difference in what bearings one would use for a roller cam vs a FT ???? Or am i safe to go ahaed n use a (retro-fit) roller with the bearings they installed??

Cam bearings would be the same. FT or roller.
