I'd just leave the board, CPU and RAM as-is.

You can check https://www.reddit.com/r/PCMasterRace/wiki/builds but that's an OK CPU and you have a lot of RAM so I'd stop right there.

I would eject the under 100GB SSDs and pop in a nice 240 or larger SSD to really fix the HDD/SSD area up.

-> I see remnants of ATI drivers so google up DDU and see if you can eject just the ATI video drivers.

The old Samsung could be slowing the machine down. Eject.
https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B00348W3GY/ref=dp_olp_all_mbc?ie=UTF8&condition=all finds it's a 10 buck thing.

The speccy is pretty clean otherwise.

ok I used ddu to delete the old drivers. I'm gonna clone the Samsung to the bigger drive and disconnect the 80gb. so far
