Better to be safe than sorry, it's up to you.
Looks like I didn't specify one key part to that... if every bolt is within a reusable tolerance, you will have to torque it down a greater amount. If it's good to go, there's no reason to buy new ones. If it's not, you don't have a choice.

And cool. what did you get?
