Yep, you need a 7/8 or 8 speed chain, and it'll be significantly cheaper than a 9 speed chain or 10 speed chain. However, the 9 or 10 speed chain would work on your 7-speed cassette, it would just be more expensive and probably weaker than the 8 speed chain.

I'd suggest getting a chain that includes a reusable master link to make installation and removal of the chain easy. The SRAM PC-8x0 series all include a master link, as do some other brands. Shimano uses a non-reusable special pin to join their chains.
