Hi, guys!
I'm building a computer on the 2011 socket for video and music editing and gaming for the next few years. I was choosing used xeon cpu on aliexpress and got stuck between choices among these three options:

E-2689 is the cheapest, has 8 cores, 3.6 ghz turbo (not for all 16 threads, i guess), more powerful than 2690 and 2650v2.

E5-2643v2, on the other hand, provides more cache and frequency, supports 1866 mhz ram, but has less cores and costs 50 bucks more than 2689.

E5-2670v2 is the most expensive option, 75 bucks more than E-2689. it has 10 cores, but less frequency than 2689.

Can you help me with advice, please? What should i get? What is the best for its money?

An E5-2689 doesn't show up on the Intel ARK which means it was never intended for public sale. It was either an engineering sample or tailored for a specific customer. Your motherboard may or may not fully support it. If it was me, I would get the 2643V2.
Thanks for answering! You're right. E5-2689 was a product for a closed marked. They made it for large companies such as apple, samsung, etc. It was more powerful than 2690 and 2680. I was advised to buy it by an acquaintance who is engaged in computers. Also, I found it at a very tasty price. I'll ask the seller if chinese x79 motherboards are supported. By the way, i'm building on plexhd motherboard from aliexpress, since it supports server memory and branded motherboards and ram are a lot more expensive.
