600$ gaming pc build

Hey,
I'm looking to build a gaming pc.

Approximate Purchase Date: before christmas (anytime from now till christmas)

Budget Range: 600$

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, streaming,...

Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, os

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.ca ncix.ca directcanada.com tigerdirect.ca amazon.ca

Country: Canada

Parts Preferences: Anything good

Overclocking: Maybe

Are tigerdirect's barebone kits any good? http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1148910&sku=B69-1363

If not, here is my current build idea:


Motherboard:
Asus P8H67

Cpu:
Intel i3 2100
122

Graphics card:
GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 550 Ti

Ram:
Gskill ripjaws 4gb 1600

Ps:

Case:

Hdd:

Drive:

Total (without hard drive): 462

Would a i5 2500k be better for the price?
Could this build run Starcraft 2 on ultra?
How would a AMD Phenom II X4 965 be the best bang for buck? (http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=4_64&item_id=027384)
