Default piston question

Ok so I am new here and just have a quick question I am rebuilding my 4.7 ram and when i took out the #2 piston I had a pretty descent size gouge out of the top of the piston from where it hit the valve. my question is should i replace it or would it be ok to reuse it ? it's just a daily driver no performance or anything and if I replace would ebay pistons from japan work ? or should i spend the extra 100 bucks and get ones off summit ? I am on a strict budget the cheaper the better thanks all for your help
