should i wait for the hd 8000 series

im currently looking for a graphic card.My budget is 250 $ max.I was thinking maybe i should wait for the 8000 series that is 250 $ below.If not i was thinking of going for the sapphire hd 7870 OC.I would want the xt version but sadly almost all the shop in my country Malaysia is out of stock and they say there will be no more stock as they do not release it anymore.So what do you guys think should i wait or should i buy the 7000 series or nvidia cards or any other amd cards :D.

    As far as I'm concerned that's still just a rumour especially as that's an update to their earlier article that said 8000 was going to be OEM so until there is something rock solid from AMD its all just rumours.

    A retailer did told me the reason they cant give me the xt 7870 was cause there was a new series the 8000coming next month perhaps that could be the oem u mention and if its so is there any ofnit that match the 7870xt cause it was such a good card for it price range
