Lifter options in SBC Dart Block

Just as the title says, I was wondering what are my options for Hydraulic lifters in a small block Dart motor? Link bar lifters are expensive. And if a factory lifter setup works in a Dart block , does the dealer sell all the parts ie. Spider tray and dogbones?
And are there any other parts that I will have to budget for like a retainer plate or cam button. I'm a novice and not sure about alot of this stuff.
Don't worry I'm not going to jump head first into this and screw-up a perfect Brand new chevy block. I just want to see if I can afford all the little things that go along with the build. Please help.

Some dart blocks allow factory hyd roller lifter components, BUT those lifters aren't that great. They work for power levels that a stock block will work for.
