I've seen several threads about "gaming" machines in the $700-$1000 price range. Are they good for family (non gaming) use as well?

I don't know of any reason why a gaming machine would have problems with non-gaming-family use.
But you could save money by getting a non-gaming machine if its only for family use...

Gaming machines are just normal computers with more processing power and graphic power (kinda like a family car with lots of HP and Torque.. kinda)

If you have kids, would suggest you think about giving them your old machine and build a new one just for your use. Kids are malware magnets and there is nothing you can do other than keep them off the computer to prevent the computer from becoming infested within days if not hours.

Gaming computers would be considered more powerful than any others.

unless you hook up a quadro plex thingy

Short answer = "Yes"

Longer answer = "Probably better than a 'general use' computer"

Without a doubt it can be better if you want to spend the money for the extra horsepower.
