mold resistance sheetrock drywall worth it

I am making my basement a rec room. Should I use mold resistance sheetrock? There doesn't seem to be much moisture in there. It never gets wet.

Just because it doesn't get "wet" doesn't mean that relative humidity levels aren't high. For the difference in cost, I use only fiberglass drywall in basements and bathrooms. It's too hard to tear out and replace later if you do have a problem.
