15GB of....DDR3? Also, that 430W won't cut it.

How old is the system, Odds are the ram is DDR2 which is obsolete for new systems and with your budget you could use the old hard drive for storage but for the operating system I would highly recommend using a SSD hard drive, much faster and well worth the investment. 15 gigs???? How did you get that combination of ram??? It usually comes to a even number.

Yes its probably ddr2 and its an older harddrive. I guess i will need to transfer the memory to a newer harddrive. Anyways ive looked up some parts and would love your opinions. A H97 plus mother board. An intel core I5-4690K. A GTX970 (i have no idea which one though, there was like 4 different brands). And finally a TR2 700W PSU.

all looks good but not familiar with the power supply brand, We can put a list together for you with some known quality parts, I just don't have time ATM but I am sure someone will and we can each have our input to find the best deals for you with a quality brand. For Power supply I look at seasonic first then Corsair as a close second but Corsair also has a lower end made by a different maker I wouldn't suggest for a gaming system. For the Power supply I would go with this first choice for a 750w
SeaSonic M12II 750 SS-750AM 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Semi-modular Power Supply - Newegg.com
But a 650w will be plenty for that system as long as it's a quality one, Many rate them at the peak power but these are rated at the standard out put with higher peak power rates. A good one if you want to save a few dollars.
SeaSonic M12II 620 Bronze 620W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply - Newegg.com
Just so you know I back seasonic this is the one I personally have

Good chance s/he's looking at Windows, which calculates minus whatever the integrated graphics takes. Usually 1GB, so 16 - 1 = 15GB.

No point in getting a K class CPU if you're not getting a Z97 board.

Actually for your budget, might as well get Skylake. Some of these items are just placeholders (like case if you don't like that one) with some room to spare.

Intel Core i5-6600K 6M Skylake Quad-Core 3.5 GHz LGA 1151 95W BX80662I56600K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 530 - Newegg.com
ASRock Z170 Extreme4 LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard - Newegg.com
CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 8GB (2 x 4GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2400 (PC4 19200) Memory Kit Model CMK8GX4M2A2400C14 - Newegg.com
EVGA GeForce GTX 980 04G-P4-2983-KR 4GB SC GAMING w/ACX 2.0, 26% Cooler and 36% Quieter Cooling Graphics Card - Newegg.com
EVGA 220-G2-0650-Y1 80 PLUS GOLD 650W ECO Mode Fully Modular NVIDIA SLI Ready and Crossfire Support Continuous Power Supply - Newegg.com
SAMSUNG 850 EVO 2.5" 250GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-75E250B/AM - Newegg.com
Western Digital WD Blue Hard Drive 1TB WD10EZEX 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" | Internal Hard Drive - Newegg.com
Phanteks “ Enthoo Pro Series “ PH-ES614P_BK Black Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Newegg.com
CORSAIR Hydro Series H60 (CW-9060007-WW) Water Cooler - Newegg.com

Then add your copy of Windows and/or up to 16GB of RAM.

Mind if i just copy this? Everything sounds right and it is my price range. The only thing missing is the processor which is out of stock.

Yea man, and I can vouch on the case as I have it. You can check the cable management thread for how it looks or click the link in my sig which is a Youtube video of my initial build with it. 6600k in stock at Amazon but not for long.
