Correct Oil Pressure for SBC 350

Hello Everyone.
I searched all Oil Pressure Threads in Engine forum, but I could not really find a straight forward answere. It's probabely I'm too amateur and need to be explained thoroughly.

I am finishin my SBC 350, with new Edelbrock Performer Heads, Intake, Cam, ...

I used Melling M-55 stock oil pump. My car is 1970 1/2 Camaro and there's not Oil Pressure measuring unit on it.
First I wanted to know what type of Oil Pressure Gauge I should be using and in what range it should operate.

On the other hand, I want to know what should be my Oil Pressure at various RPM's. When should I worry and when I should not

Thanks in advance for all suggestions.
