with upgrades over the course of it's life, this system could last 10 years.

Going for 2 DIMMs would allow for dual channel, which would be helpful as both Ryzen and iGPUs are very bandwidth hungry though I haven't seen specific info in AM4 Athlons.

Also, I'd probably start with a better CPU (e.g. Ryzen 3 2200G). I know AMD has a reputation for CPU compatibility between generations, but there's still no guarantee that it will be possible to upgrade easily in the future, and especially not more than three or so years in the future.
