I would like your advice on which one of these to get. Not sure if the 10900k is worth it but more cores might become handy for future games i guess. My pc would be purely for gaming. Also what cooler would you recommend for each of these ? I was thinking noctua dh15.
 
The NH-D15 is likely not sufficient for the 10900K...save for at perhaps low, minimum base clock speeds, likely not a winning solution for gaming..(two extra unused/unneeded cores does not make up for clock speed)

If you already have the NH-D15 as your cooling solution, I'd for sure choose the 10700K of the two you options you listed...and even then, stock 'Intel-spec' operation and clock speeds would be likely to maintain good temps, I'd suspect..

For games the 3700x and 10700k are more than sufficient for years to come.

The 3900x and 10900k approach overkill. Little improvement given the up front investment
