Talking Changing my gearing

I finally am going for it, I bought a 15 tooth in the front and a 43 tooth in the back. I also purchased a speedo healer to correct my mileage and speed read out. All I need now is a decent chain. I' am not racing I just want to access some of the top end power that I would never use otherwise. So do I really need a $150 chain? can I get away with something less expensive?

not to get off topic, but I would invest in a new tire before regearing it... your rear tire looks like its squared off...but in my opinion I would definitely go for a good chain. If you are looking to find the power up top then you want a chain that wont be flying off up there...
