The i5 is not better than that xeon.

That xeon 1230v2 is basically an i7 3770 with slightly lower clocks and no iGPU. It will outperform that i5 in pretty much anything especially modern games with better multi threading support.
so i should go with the xeon and i wanted to know too if the xeon will bottleneck new cards like rtx 2060 or 2070

If those are your only options sure. Why are you looking at those two what is your budget for CPU, mobo, and RAM?

A bottleneck will depend on the game, in modern CPU heavy games yes either of those CPU's would likely hold back a 2070 a bit especially at 1080p or lower, games will still be perfectly playable however. I play at 1440p and even my i7 7700k@4.9ghz holds back my 2070 super slightly in cpu heavy titles like BF1 and AC Odyssey, so it very much depends on the game.

i already have a h77 mobo , 8 gb of ram and gtx 1050 i was looking for a good used processor for 50$ or 60$ and i was asking if the xeon won't bottlneck newer cards cuz i was planning to get a rx 580 in the future without changing the processor or mobo
