Default End of race for faster CPU and better PC specs?

Not long ago, a new fast PC becomes one of the slowest after just less than a year of use. Prices of faster CPUs were normally lower than their predecessors. Not so these past couple years.

Three years ago I bought a P4 2.0Ghz desktop expecting it would become obsolete in no time. When I tried shopping for a new one lately, I couldn't find any specs that is better than my old computer for the same price.

Are we approaching the end of the race for faster (and improved specs) and more affordable PCs?

Computers are always getting better. They might not be evolving at the rate that at they were before, but they still are. We now have dual core, socket 939 and 754, better graphics cards, much bigger HDs, SATA II, SLI and those are only a few new technologies.
