First, lets be realistic, your not going to get that system with that budget, just not going to happen. Water cooling is an expensive, but rewarding, hobby.

Second, imo its best to start with a kit, you got a great water cooling case to start with, but tell us what you want to water cool and that will help in the direction you need to go.

is that 3 rads? Seems overkill for that loop.

I'm building a WC setup with that same case. I'm using a 295x2 GPU and my CPU. The plan is going to be https://shop.ekwb.com/ek-kit-x360 with the GPU coverblock and backplate. Maybe look at something like this?
