The 7900 series won't be coming out until Q1 2012, but sometime in the next couple of months the 7800 series will be out.  Does anyone recommend a supplier who can take a pre-order for 7870's?

If its for bitcoin mining, Id sit and wait. There is a good chance the next generation radeons will suck at mining compared to current and previous ones. Everything I read points to AMD moving in to the same direction nVidia took with fermi, with fewer, but more complex units.  Thats good for a lot of things, but not for mining.

The leaked docs indicate the 7800 series uses same architecture 6xxx series.  It is only the 79xx cards which will use a new architecture.

The 7800 series is simply put faster, cooler, more efficient versions of current generation.  The 7xxx series also moves to XDR ram and PCIe 3.0 neither of which doing anything for mining.  Well XDR is a slight plus it uses about 1/3 less power which is contributing to the reduced TDP.
