Corsair themed build. With some ASUS ROG parts, with wi-fi and blue tooth added.

You could go RTX 3080/AMD 6800XT. If they were in stock. However, no up to date graphics cards are in stock. The most frequent cards in stock are RTX 3070 and I thought the Asus is the right theme and well reviewed to match the motherboard.

Case rated highly, good quality PSU, AIO cooling with RGB from Corsair, 32 Gig of RGB 3600 Mhz. Fast storage, you could go Corsair PCIE - 4 with this.

▷ Corsair Force MP600 series 1TB NVMe PCIe Gen4… | OcUK ( £158.99

Apart from graphics card ALL IN STOCK.

£200 is too much from B550 and fully at X570 board level.
(Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite/MSI X570 Tomahawk)
This would be more reasonable limit for B550.
And if not needing Wifi/BT could go lower.
£150 would give competent board.
Expensive board simply won't make CPU any faster/longer good lasting.

For memory ~£150 is correct price from 3600MHz CL18.
For £170 would demand starting of latency tightening:

While VA panels have way highest contrast of LCDs making them best choise for darkened/dimly illuminated room, wouldn't recommend them for normal room lightning.
All VAs except couple latest Samsungs have seriously sluggish dark shade transition response times compared to IPS panels.
And this budget could easily get good 27" 2560x1440 IPS.
Prices start from £370

Seasonic Focus is 750W PSU for £112:

For CPU Alpenfohn Brocken 3 is wel lenough for nice £43.

With all the savings that budget could easily fit 2TB SSD, if you know you're going to have lots of games installed.
Bang for the buck drive is actually £185
