Nope, regulator doesn't need to change. The one thing you might consider (I did this and am very happy I did) is to put quick disconnects on your gas and beer lines from the tower. That way you can have a set of connectors for corny kegs, as well as your commercial coupler and easily swap between them if you happen to purchase a commercial keg. I've bought sixtels before for parties, so it's nice to be able to quickly switch couplers.

I was actually considering that. What is the best type of disconnects?

ball locks just seem to be a better locking design but in reality they both work just as well... you just have to pay attention to the fact that the connector with the 3 pin cutouts goes with the 3 pinned post and the connector with the two pin cutouts.... well you get the picture... google for images of them and youll see what I mean. I suppose if your rough with them the ball lock ones would take more knocking around without leaking.
pin lock kegs are also shorter and slightly larger diameter I believe than ball lock kegs. my ball lock kegs are actually 10 gallon and all my 5 gallon are pinlocks... you can find pinlock kegs on sale from time to time for as little as $25 bit ball lock kegs keep going up and are harder to find used.

^^^ This! Very true. Most people will get rid of pin locks before ball locks. I have both, but mainly use the ball locks. Actually thinking about reselling my pin locks, now that I went to all the trouble of cleaning them up and putting new lids on 'em.
