The Cherries boss is delighted with how his striking unit has fared during the early stages of the 2013/14 campaign.
Howe's side have made an impressive start to life in the Championship, claiming two victories from their opening three fixtures.
Lewis Grabban has netted all four of their goals in the league, while Wes Thomas has nailed down a squad standing and Brett Pitman has made a welcome return from a hamstring injury.
Howe is convinced those already at his disposal are capable of holding their own in the second tier and sees no reason why he should go looking for another frontman - especially as his board would have to dig seriously deep in order to bankroll a recruitment drive.
On his forward line, Howe told the Daily Echo: "They are very good players and we have certainly never underestimated our strikers.
"It is easy to bring in players but if you think you are going to improve your squad, they have got to be better than the ones you already have.
"To find players better than the ones we have is extremely difficult and will cost you a lot of money.
"We have certainly never underestimated the three established strikers we have here and, hopefully, they continue to excel because they are all good players individually."
