Dead 775 setup out of loop need advice

Been on a laptop for years. My antec 900 setup has been down that whole time.

I've lost track on all updates since C2D came out.

What I am looking to do?
Looking for powerful motherboard options and capable midrange guts that I can upgrade over time to keep on edge.

I ran a pentium d 820 forever, bumped up to an e21xx, and fell behind.

I'm looking to do similar but then keep up. I had my d820 cranked to 3.7ghz. I'd like to get the most affordable, easily over locked cpu. Something capable at the stock level. Newer games at mid level settings. Girlfriend wants to stream and play sims 4.

Im far out of the loop and confused as hell. Silver, gold, i3/i5/i7... Ryzen, blah blah blah. In my day it was celeron on not, really. Lol so many options now.

Anyway I'm adding a screen shot of my ideas so far.
I have a SSD, case and psu. Corsair 600 I think, which was new as of ~4 years ago and barley used. From what I've seen, going to 1155 (300) the psu should still work?

Any and all suggestions welcome.
I know I can search and I know there are tons of these threads, but I'm at such a loss as to what's capable and not, overclockable or not, I'm just too out of the current loop to know where to start.
Thanks in advance.
