BDC is used for surfacing data  from LOB systems to SharePoint, By using BDC combined with BDC webparts allows you to deploy no code  solutions, in your case since you have gone custom  webpart route there is really no need to use BDC unless you are doing some customized rendering in your webpart but want to leverage BDC so your custom code doesn't need to manage connections, provide Create, Retrieve, Update, Delete functionality etc. The other thing you probably should know is although write backs to LOB systems are supported its not quite straightforward, there are some tools out there that helps with creating BDC app def files, MS ships a free editor with SDK, you can also purchase BDC metaman which has lot more functionality than free tool offers.
