Length/twist/profile don't really matter. I bought a DPMS upper and complete bolt assy on GUNBROKER and was at METROSHOT saturday and purchased my lower. So, basically, I've "shot my wad" so to speak and can't afford to buy a new barrel, so am looking for used/extremely cheap, so I can start my build.May even have METROSHOT build it,don't know yet...
Once I can get the build done, then I will think about upgrades....

Ahh, well see it does matter...

What size gas block/front site do you have???

Do you have M4 or A2 handguards?

Tell us more about what parts you're using....

Well, I haven't really gotten that far yet either......No handguards, no gas block or front site..........
I can tell this build is going to be fun and time/cash consuming

If you troll the AR15.com used section like I used to you'll find some deals. I've bought a couple of barrels for $25-50 each.
