I should mention that many of my sites have exact match keyword domains (.com). I have roughly $200K total invested in domains that now appear to have no leveraging power in Google.
So you can have the best content in your niche by far. You can have the most content in your niche. You can even have the exact keyword domain for your specific niche (a $30K investment). At the end of the day however your 1,000 page niche specific website is going to be outranked by a two paragraph Wikipedia article on the subject and some extremely spammy About dot com article.
