After doing some more research, it appears the switchblock will only complicate purchasing a rail so I've decided to just go with the low profile version of the Noveske barrel instead of the swtichblock. Does this alter the springs and buffer I need?

If you were building an SBR without the switchblock, that's where I would start though.
Aimpoint and Eotech are the most popular. It will boil down to your preference. I've tried both, and my eyes prefer the reticle of the Eotech so now only use those. I have no long term experience with the Trijicon ACOG or RMR.
Good to know, thanks!
