There is no "lifetime", either AMD or Intel. Capabilities change, sockets change.
AMD is a bit better than Intel, but nowhere near "forever".
And "upgrades" are not needed all the time.

Buy and build the best PC that fits within the budget. Use it until it no longer fits the needs, then look into upgrading.

Intel socket Z490 boards will be compatible with the new Rocket Lake chips but with your budget I'd look at an AMD build with a B550 board.
 
Add a psu and gpu to this build and you're good to go.
