Does price and quality matter?

So I went to a local computer repair store to see if they had thermal paste. They did and it was $3. The brand of the paste was in a foreign language. I was just wondering if lower quality paste is bad or it dosent matter. Sorry for bad grammar I'm in a rush.

Like SilverWolf149 said the range in quality might mean a few degrees Celsius difference which isn't game changing, with the price so minimal from a crappy to a nice compound most people will advise to get a quality compound that has better thermal conductivity.

I'd say it's almost more important to apply it properly as even a quality compound not applied correctly won't do the job.
