Do I need to buy thermal paste separately?

I'm planning out my ~600$ budget build and I'm getting the Enermax ETS-T40-BK 76.0 CFM CPU Cooler (https://pcpartpicker.com/part/enermax-cpu-cooler-etst40bk) and I'm just trying to figure out if I would need to buy thermal paste separately. If I do need to purchase thermal paste recommendations that will be cheap but will get the job done?

It looks like that cooler comes with some thermal paste anyway. So, you don't need to buy any as you have some, and it should work acceptably.
