on a budget hoping to get a video card later on so looking at a 700CAD$ max
I highly recommend going with Intel's newest architecture, Skylake. The i5 6500 is a bit cheaper than the one you listed and similar performance. This means you will also need to change mobo and ram.
Parametrics filters can be used on SSDs as a general guideline but out of those I would cherry pick the best performing and bet value SSD, which would be the ADATA SP550 or Sandisk SSD Plus
