7820x vs 8700k

I recently picked up a used and delidded 7820x for 390 Euros with shipping (I couldn't resist that bargin). So do you think I should sell it again or just use it in my rig? Right now the 8700k is 500 Euros(~410 Euros) used here so I don't know if I should keep the 7820x as it was cheaper and has more cores.

It has the same number of cores.

 

You'll have to spend a ton more on an X299 motherboard for the 7820x.

Inside some old case I found lying around.
