It really depends on what are you planning on using it for.
No, if you plan on using it for web browsing, light work and using it in a smaller environment. You really don't need to spend all that much on a router for simple tasks.
Yes, if you plan on using it for hardcore gaming, media streaming, large file downloading and using it in a large environment where the range of the device is crucial for maximum speed and minimum latency. This is more for power users in mind.
For me though, I have many computers and i do a lot of gaming and transferring of files. But the killer feature for me was the ability to hook up 3 usb devices with a powered hub in which i connect to my external hard drives and my printer.
Which is why I have 2 of these.

Is the router in the Time Capsule the same router used in the Airport Extreme? Or is it not as efficient?
