That helps. A reasonably powerful mainstream computer still costs between $800 and $1000 (I'll count EUR and $ that same for the moment). Below $800, you have to cut corners somewhere (usually the case or power supply), and above $1000 you pick up more specialized features, like dual processors, ECC/Reg memory, multiple network adapters, or even more mundane things like BlueRay burners, TV tuners or really powerful video cards. Note that this price range does not include the monitor or any fancy keyboards or mice.
