I want a game on Steam that's priced around 50 USD but i've seen some websites that sell steam accounts with games purchased in countries where prices are considerably lower. My question is: Does Steam allow third-party vendors like this website to sell accounts with games? Is it unlikely that it will be deactivated? Thanks in advance for your help.

That's probably the biggest problem with buying things digitally once they're assigned to an account.  How can you sell/trade it in?  Ever since Xbox and PlayStation have become more digital I've also been purchasing more digital content, especially with Gamestop giving $.22 cents as a game trade-in.  

Anyway, to answer your question... Steam is against selling or trading accounts according to their FAQ online

Can I buy or sell my Steam account?

Steam accounts cannot be bought or sold. 

What happens if my Steam account is found to be bought or sold?

If a Steam account is found to be purchased or sold, the account may be locked permanently. Please refer to the Suspended Steam Account article for more information on account restrictions.
