Cam timing

What's up hot Rodders, a little on the confused side, since I hear this and then that....

I just installed a new cam and now the new gear sprocket with chain, now I have it 6 o'clock cam and 12 crank (dot to dot)... Lifters just installed, now next step I have read in certain places that 6-12 is TDC (but really #6 cylinder firing) 180 degrees out and that 12-12 is really TDC (#1 firing) do I leave it 6-12 oclock or 12-12 o'clock before I put the timing cover on and distributor rotor would be on what number
