I Found this information or
after tightning head down and running engine, must a new head gasket be used if tore back down?
 You can get away with reusing the copper style gasket as long as it isnt damaged, The steel gaskets and the silicone gaskets are a one time use.

Is this the best choice to replace the old copper gasket?
 Alot of it is preferance. I have been using the copper head gaskets and Ill stick with them because you can reuse them a few times. The silicone one you can not reuse, but alot of other people like them.

I Found this information or
Can the gasket be used with a high compression head. Your answer is no. Is that for a aluminum head? Or a cast iron head? Or no on both?
 This gasket has a steel crush ring around the combustion chamber that must be sandwiched between the head and the block. Most high compression heads have a different shape on the deck so that it exposes the silicone directly to the combustion chamber which will not work. In the steel or copper gaskets you have the metal acting as a shield on the main surface of the gasket so that it is not a problem.
