Piston choice

Ok, so what I am going to do now is:

1. have the block decked JUST enough to make sure Ihave it indexed 90 degrees to the crank.

2. have a flat surface for optimum sealing for the .015 steel shim head gasket.

3. have the heads checked for flatness and milled if needed. Perhaps .020.

4. I am considering an .30 overbore to fit a set of pistons. I have seen these and am wondering if they are ok or not. I was looking for something with less than +7.00 cc. +5 cc sounds good if I want to keep the compression up.
These Pistons from Summit.

It seems silly to me to get a .015 head gasket, mill everything & then go to a +7 cc flat top piston.

I need help with this guys, there is so much stuff to keep track of.
