More detailed instructions:

 

Please Publish a Snapshot using Speccy taking care to post the link of the snapshot in your next post.

   Go to Piriform's website, and download the free version on the left.  Click Download from Piriform.com (the FileHippo link requires an extra click). Or if you want to use a portable version of Speccy (which doesn't require installation), click the builds page link and download the portable version. You will now be asked where you want to save the file. The best place to put it is the Desktop, as it will be easy to find later.

    After the file finishes downloading, you are ready to run Speccy. If you downloaded the installer, simply double-click on it and follow the prompts until installation is complete. If you downloaded the portable version, you will need to unzip it before use. Right-click the ZIP file and click Extract all. Click Next. Open up the extracted folder and double-click on Speccy.
 
     Once inside Speccy, it will look similar to this (with your computer's specifications, of course):
 
post-33068-0-86653600-1480692866_thumb.j

     Now, at the top, click File > Publish Snapshot.

     Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard

Now, once you are back in the forum topic you are posting in, click the ADD REPLY or REPLY TO THIS TOPIC button. Right-click in the empty space of the Reply box and click Paste. Then, click Add Reply below the Reply box.

Physically clean it with electronic contact cleaner or in a pinch rubbing alcohol or zippo fuel works too, change s-ata cable if needed and or s-ata ports on the motherboard, i mean if the hdd is acting funny.

I just want to know if there is anything worth upgrading for pretty basic games (steam stuff), and usual browser usage.

Thanks!

What makes you determine that you need to do anything?  What do you think that an upgrade or a new system will cure?

 

Please download MiniToolBox  , save it to your desktop and run it.
 
Checkmark the following checkboxes:
  List last 10 Event Viewer log
  List Installed Programs
  List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
 
Click Go and paste the content into your next post.

Socket 775 MB...WD ATA hard drive.  DDR2 RAM.

 

New motherboard could possibly entail new RAM, along with new CPU.  May also lead to new PSU and discrete graphics card.

 

If you want a new system....I see nothing that I would use as a reason for spending that money.  But...I don't try to justify my purchases, I just do what I want to do.

I'm not saying anything like that...I don't have the system, I have no idea what problems existed since you wiped it and did a clean install.

 

The upgrade path for socket 775 motherboards...belongs to yesterday.  Even if components for such are available, chances are the cost will be more than components for newer systems.  DDR2 is RAM that has been technologically surpassed in terms of price, efficiency, and availability.

 

A system, any system...is only of value as long as it does what the user wants to get accomplished.  From the details which you have provided us...I see nov evidence that it cannot

 

Any computer made in the last 15 years that is without component defect...does web browsing with ease.

 

You mention playing games...I don't game so I can't comment on your system's capability for the games that you would like to run.  Others here can comment on gaming capability.
