which head gaskets to use

i just have my engine heads and intake and carb and such to put onto my engine left. i Got a Complete Engine gasket set for $30 from moores. on the box it says ROL gasket set. should i use the head gaskets from the kit or get some like fel pro or whatever they are called. i want a good seal and not to leak on me. is these ones i got good enough or no good? these ones i have they say they have to be put on dry and no sealer added. kind of a rubbery gasket over the metal.

I`ve used all kinds of head gaskets, to the cheapy`s to the expensive, never had a problem, the ROL gaskets will work fine.

I don't recognize that particular ROL gasket, but I use their graphite faced high performance head gaskets and never had a problem.
