Question Opinion on possible build

I would advise getting a better CPU. The Celeron only has like 2 threads and is rather weak. It may not even handle many tabs well.

This CPU has hyper threading and a higher clockspeed.

What is your budget?
Your parts are compatible.

But, if you have some budget room, here are some suggestions:

a) $15 more will buy you a G5400, a stronger processor with 4 threads.

b) Chrome tends to need lots of ram. See if you can't manage a 2 x 8gb DDR4 ram kit. Speed does not matter.
Adding ram later can not be guaranteed to work. ram must be matched. perhaps 90% chance of success adding ram later.

c) 120gb is marginal for a windows C drive. When it nears full, you will lose performance and endurance.
See if you can't manage 240gb. Samsung and Intel are good.
Here is an intel 760P 240gb m.2 pcie drive for $49:
