While that's a decent deal for the architecture, one would be better off waiting for coffee lake i7 8700k's to become available.
Pros - 8700k: faster clock speeds, more cache, iGPU, little cheaper price, uses less power

Pros - 7800x: quad memory support; 28 pci-e lanes, up to 128GB ram, can upgrade to an i9 using same mobo, easily overclock %20, no availability issues.

I'm going to wait for an 8700k, but would REALLY like to wait for CannonLake... but that might not even be out by end of next year
