Default Speed of Computer Updates

I bought a PC last year:

Dell Dimension 8300
Pentium 4 2.40 GHz
512 MB of RAM
111.76 GB HD
etc...

And I know in a couple of years time, my PC will need updating and this kind of bothers me. What do the rest of you think about the speed of computer updates, does it bother you?

But doesn't it bother you when a couple of months before your PC was the best on the market and now its mediocre?

But say you buy an Audigy card and then a week later the newest verion comes out, this would severly piss me off.

I guess I just like to know my PC is one of the best ones on the market for a little longer than it is.

hmmm lets see..... viruses, spyware. ad-aware..... nothing else really. i love it when there are new products out. you just feel like u NEED the new products and ur gunna die without them. the thing i don't like very much is when a product has been out for like a year and a half but it still has the original price on it. thats pretty much it.
