Nah, buy a kit because it saves you time and headache. No looking for the best price on check valves, no running to the store because you forgot one, and that thermometer too, and wait, where's the best place to get a carboy? If shopping on line, shipping from each place; if not, driving to and fro. Then there's assembling the two dozen + pieces.

Time is worth money too.

So, to really answer his question. Need to? No. But consider time and hassle (although, very possible enjoyment for many) when you make your decision.
