i heard that xeon is bad for gamingIf you have a discrete GPU, you might want to consider something like a Xeon 1230v2, or higher, that your motherboard supports. They are basically an i7, without integrated graphics, and often cheaper.
Those bottleneck sites are pure garbage, and in no way accurate. Ebay available in your area? Aliexpress might be an option too. If you absolutely don't want to try, get the 2500k.cause i just checked that the xeon and my gtx 1050 will make a bottleneck of 60% but the i5 will only make 7%
the problem is that i don't have this xeon processors in local shops and is the 2500k really better than the 3470?1st those bottleneck calcs are not accurate at all, only real way to actually see if theres a bottleneck is seeing it for your self, for more information id suggest you watch youtube videos, jayztwocents has some good videos on how a bottleneck actually looks like.
and as pointed out the Xeon E3-1230 v2 would be a better cpu that your two other choices.
not to mention that the xeon has more cores and as fast as the i5 2500k @3.7Ghz stock boost speeds.
Xeons arent bad for gaming, but not the best either.
