To any real developer that's absolutely nothing. You'll spend nearly as much (or more) on a full license of Visual Studio ($700 for Pro; $2000 for Team). If you're cheap then VS2k5 Standard is "only" $270, but you'll probably regret it.
LOL! Define "real." There are plenty of free and sub-$200 game development products which include their own compilers and don't require Visual Studio at all or that will work with free IDE's and compilers like Visual Studio Express Edition. Lots of real independent game developers have created their games with those tools without spending one thousand dollars or more on them. Sure, they're not going to create the next AAA blockbuster with those tools, but that's not the market for those products. Games created with them are the things you find on Reflexive Arcade, RealArcade, and shareware sites.
