Not streaming games and no VR, just want something that can play games like WoW, Monster Hunter World, and hold up for most future games like the next Elder Scrolls game at maximum visual settings. Buying a prebuilt as I have very minimal tech know-how and would like to have tech support available if I run into issues. I know self built is better/cheaper but it's not what I'm looking for at the moment.

Would like it to include a 1TB SSD and capable cooling system. These are what I'm looking at. Open to suggestions on other prebuilts! Thanks.

The first link doesn't show the price unless you pick a store, so depending on the store in could be expensive. I will assume that it's $2,300.

The first one, the 9900k is very good chip and is paired with the second best gpu money can buy. The only drawback is that intel will be discontinuing that platform soon, but if you don't plan to upgrade the cpu, it's really a non-issue.
There are no games that come to mind that use more then 16gb ram, so you're golden.

Why would you need such powerful system to play these games? Anyways if the first link costs 3000$ then stay away from it since you can build a similar system for around 1800$

You don't specs anything like this for the games you've mentioned. Do you do any graphics work or video-editing on the computer? If not, you could save a huge amount of money and get a solid pre-built, if you're determined not to build it yourself.
