    I've always been told to replace the gasket every time you pull the valve cover. Seems overkill IMO, but it is easy to remove the Valve Cover (definitely easier than the Oil Pan) so you can just use the same gasket and watch for leaks... I would try to get by without replacing it to save money... If you haven't replaced it for a while then get a new one and do something worthwhile like adjust your valves to help justify the gasket...
