How old is your son? Lots of benefits in having him build it himself from parts. Cheaper too.

In terms of raw gaming performance, the one from gameekstra has the edge in graphics power. The imtec system has a minor edge in CPU performance.

A high end monitor is necessary to make these make any sense at all. 1440p high refresh or 4K 60hz. If you haven't budgeted a monitor into these selections then you might need to reevaluate.

RTX2080Ti and RTX2080 / RTX 2080 Super are good for 1440p well above 60hz in most titles. (or 4K)
RTX2070 / RTX 2070 Super are good for 1440p 60hz
RTX2060 / RTX 2060 Super/ RX5700 is adequate for 1440p without maxing out game settings
GTX1660 TI is good for 1080p

You are obviously willing to spend quite a bit, so we'll ignore the lower end offerings.

I went with more reasonable part selections in some cases, but that Ryzen build in particular isn't very well optimized for a high end gaming system. The Intel build is better off the shelf, but still over priced. About $800 US more on the Intel and $600 US more on the AMD build.

What countries are you shopping in?
Bosnia and Turkey?

Of the 2 choices you provided, the i9-9900K build is the better one (if price after currency conversion is the same). I'd recommend an i7-9700K though. That should cost a fair bit less without giving up much/ any performance in games.

Something like This would still provide good performance on a 1440p resolution monitor and is a well balanced system.
*I have no idea on whether or not price is good for what you're getting, just judging on components only.

I don't like gameekstra using such small SSDs (240GB only for their high end builds?) I also don't like that once you drop out of their "best of the best" tier, they're only offering 8GB system RAM. 16GB is pretty average these days in mid-tier systems.
