It was very convenient having gadgets for these stats in Windows 7, along with the graph history they display. Can I still have this on Windows 8 or something similar without using 3rd party software?

Although W8 does not support Gadgets anymore, there is a couple of methods that gets them back.

One option uses gadget files from the Release Preview of W8, so it would not be 3rd party.

8Gadgetpack is another option.
