best gasket set for top end build

My car started leaking from right behind the water pump yesterday, and I'm almost positive its the LIM gasket. Did a poor man's rebuild when I bought the car since it had spun a bearing on the crank 25k miles ago. My question is who has the best quality gaskets, and if there is a set even better. Also, how much does it usually take to have the heads done, might kill two birds with one stone

I generally use fel-pro gaskets. The cost of head work depends on what your having done to them. Just having them decked or porting work. Machine shop work isnt the cheapest thing ever. When I had my heads decked, ported and polished it cost $1100 Just having the heads decked should run around $300-$400.

Be sure you get the fel-pro problem solver intake gaskets. They're metal.

Part # MS 98014 T

Looks like this:
