do i really need forged?

Hi i am wondering how much rpms a cast crank,rods,and pistons will go? I have always wondered if it is worth spending the gazillion dollars more on forged. I understand preventative maintnence, but we will see where some of these answers lead to. Another question is ultimately if i have to go forged, what one peice(crank,rods,pistons) would you guys for sure get forged? this is for no specific rig, i work with small/big block chevies if that helps. so if cast limit is 6000rpm just say 6000 and below cast,6000 up forged or something along the lines of that. Thank you for helping me with my upcoming builds.
