Do I need endless encoders to go above 127?

After 5 or 6 months of playing with Max in my spare time I think I can finally invest in a midi controller devoted to it. But I want to make sure I'm getting the right type of controller. Questions...
1) Do I need endless encoders in order to go above 127 in a number box? For example, if I needed a couple of number boxes to go to 1000 or even 5000 I need a midi controller with endless encoders, right? Otherwise, it stops at 127.
2) Once I have the endless encoders, do I need to write any Max code in order for the number box and my controller to go up beyond 127?
I haven't played around with any midi controllers (just used a mouse) until now. I just want to make sure I'm not wasting money on a controller that is useless with Max. Right now, I have an old midi keyboard w/o endless encoders and it's pretty useless for this type of thing. The controller doesn't have to be perfect, I just need it to control number boxes, etc... (I have lots of them usually).
