Worth upgrading from a GTX 1070 to a 1080Ti?

Hello, 

 
My current system is a Ryzen 5 3600 @ 4.3 Ghz, GTX 1070 G1 @ 2000-2070 Mhz boost, 9 Ghz memory, 16 GB DDR4 3200 memory, with about 1.5TB of SSD storage for the OS, games, and data. 
 

Is adding 160-170$ for an Aorus 1080 Ti  worth it? 
 

The 1070 seems to play games comfortably so I'm just not sure if the 1080Ti will make a significant difference. Any users with a 1080Ti wish to share their opinion on the experience?

 

My monitor is Samsung CJG5 Series 27-Inch WQHD (2560 x 1440) 144Hz 4ms Curved.

There is a noticeable difference especially at 1440p. My best friend has a 1070 and I'm running 1080Ti and I can safely say that for 1080p I wouldn't deem it worth the upgrade but for 1440p it 100% is. 170$ is not terrible considering the performance bump you'll get at around 40-50% FPS increase.

Ampere is worse than Fermi, change my mind.

If the techpowerup performance summary is to be believe they say a GTX 1080 Ti is about 50% faster at 1080p vs the GTX 1070.

 

I'd imagine the GTX 1080 Ti could maintain that gap at 1440p as well.

1070s go for ~200 used and 1080tis go for 350-400, so thats about market value in this case. if the 1070 is fine then no point in upgrading, ive got my 980ti at 1440p 144hz without too much trouble. 1080tis are fine cards for sure, though i'd go for an ftw3, strix, or something instead of the aorus as the cooler isnt as good iirc

topics i need help on:

I went from a 1070 Ti to a 1080 Ti for 1440p/144hz and think it was totally worth it, if you have a plain 1070 I would go for it.

Current build: AMD Ryzen 3600, ASUS PRIME X570-Pro, EVGA GTX 1080 Ti SC2, G.Skill 2x16GB 3600C16 DDR4, Samsung 850 Evo 250GB SATA (boot), Sabrent Rocket 1TB NVMe (games/work), Corsair RM750x, Scythe Mugen 5 Rev. B, Phanteks Enthoo Pro M, LG 27GL83A-B
