I'd mainly use my PC for content creation (Premiere Pro, Photoshop) and would like to know your opinion. Almost all of the articles are from the 3900x's launch, but I guess there have been improvements since then in drivers and bios. In my country the 3900x is 100$ cheaper than the 9900k, and seems better in my opinion, but people say the 9900k performes a bit better in live playback in Premiere. I don't know if it's even noticeable (For those who has 3900x, is there any lag in playback?)

If you use your PC mainly for content creation, you shouldn't even look at the 9900k. The extra cores and threads help with all things content creation. I have 3 PCs, one with the 3900x, one with the 9900k and one with a threadripper 3970x. As of now, I haven't seen any performance benefits the 9900k has over the 3900x except gaming where you will get a 5-10 fps improvement over the 3900x. If you care about that then sure, go for the 9900k otherwise going for the 3900x is a much better choice.
