Score 165V/165Q on GRE. Do I need to take GMAT for MBB?

Scored a 165V/165Q split on the GRE. It is the equivalent of a 730 GMAT.

I am planning to apply to B School and go for MBB. Do I need to take the GMAT or focus my efforts elsewhere.

Anyone with first hand knowledge of this - could you please chime in?

Thank you,
