As others have stated, I believe all DreamHost plans are considered equal as far as server allocation is concerned. The only differences are those shown on the DreamHost plan comparison page.
I would be interested in learning what exactly caused your plan to be 'capped'. DreamHost recently removed their CPU resource limitations, so I thought such situations were a thing of the past.
