Default Is there a purpose for using pf if you have a hardware router/firewall?

I haven't started using pf yet, but I'm wondering if it would still be worth using if I already have a built-in firewall with my router and what the difference is between that and setting up a dedicated box as a pf firewall for everything to run through first before reaching any other computers on my network as opposed to not having one and just using the firewall router.
