I haven't put together a PC since before AMD's ascension. Does anyone have any advice for me on the following build? It is primarily for modern shooters @ 1080p. I'm trying to future proof it as best I can (hence overkill PSU). Thanks!

Not a bad build but I think you could save elsewhere to get yourself a better GPU, which will have the most effect. Since you talked of futureproofing I left your mobo and PSU unchanged. It's a little over your cost of previous build but the GPU will give you a vastly increased gaming performance. 3300X has gaming performance very close to the 3600 and is slightly better value IMO. Samsung SSD is good but overpriced for me, considering you can get this NVME drive for cheaper.
