Amd FX 6300
Sapphire R9 280x
8GB Ram
1TB Western Digital black

With that setup you should use all-in-one coolers which are much more simple to setup, much cheaper, and much less maintenance. It's very important to know which case you have also before making any recommendations but to start you would want the NZXT Kraken G10 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00ITTFO8M and the Corsair H55 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009VV56TY for your GPU cooler.

I can't recommend anything for your CPU until I know your case but your best options will either be the Corsair H105 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HKEI3EY or the Corsair H80i http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009ZN03AA assuming you have the space for the radiators.

I think the OP's talking about constructing a custom desk to hold the components as well as a custom loop for at least the CPU and GPU. I would say a minimum of $400 by the time it was complete. If you were building a custom desk, it'd show ingenuity if you could incorporate a bong cooler into it. It'd probably save you a bit of money too.

I assumed a custom loop but the tone of the question seemed like cost was an issue. Therefore, I recommend a simple AIO setup which is a much better option for almost anyone unless you really want to spend a lot more money for a marginal gain in results.

Yeah I agree AIO's are a better option in most circumstances. A lot less effort too.
