First build. Need advice.

ok, this is what i've got:
350 block bored .030
stock heads cast #193 (??cc)
stock crank std/std polished
holley 750 cfm double pumper man. chk.
torker II intake
melling cam .320 i & e lobe lift, 230 dgree i & e @ .050, .480 i & e vlv lift
stock rods
elgin high perf. springs that are verrry close to what melling recomends
i'm looking at speed pro hypereutectic coated pistons

i want to build a fun go-fast with some reliablity so i can also drive to work 2-3 times a week.

awe righty, now my 1st qwestion:

what pistons should i get so i can still run pump gas and not detonate my shiney new pistons to ittie bittie piston pieces? and not lose ponies? and any sugestions on which way to go on the build overall from more experienced builders is good too. any and all help greatly appreiceated.
