How much money or chips are in a "rack"?

I have played in live games where racks are used, but am curious what people mean when they say "he lost 3 racks but still reloaded." Typically, how much money compared to the stakes is in a rack?

a rack holds five stacks of 20 chips. dollar chips would be 100 bucks, red chips is 500, green chips are 2500 and black chips are 10K.

Where are you playing that uses $1 chips for 1/2 NL?

Most 1/2 NL games play with predominantly $5 chips. Hence one full rack being $500.
