Electronic ignition question…

I just rebuilt my engine, and I have a points system.
I would like to transfer it to electric ignition but since it hasn't started yet, would it be better to get it to run with the points set up first before I switch it to make sure it's running first?

Also, there are so many brands... MSD, Mopar, Mallory, Pertronix, Summit brand. Is there one that is preferred? Does it even really matter? Which brand coil to go with it?

Thanks much!!!
