Everything apart from the ram and storage seems a bit overpriced but I guess that is the times we live in now.

Yea, I unfortunately decided it was time to build my next PC during the worst time lol. This is the best price I have seen the 3600 in recent weeks.

Is the B550M preferred over X570? I thought X570 is better for future proofing.

Unless you are specifically looking for something, B550 should be good enough. Also B550 has newer memory controller, since it wa released later. Here is a reference chart...
If you want good quality X570, you need to go with ATX form factor.
