No but this will mainly be for BF1, Deus Ex, Rise of the Tomb Raider (when it's cheap enough) and Star Citizen. And I'm buying a 1440p monitor for my photo editing and I want something that will play my current games at 1440p with decent-ish framerates. If a 480x isn't too much more expensive I might actually get that one instead.
I wouldn't put off upscaling.
When I sold my GTX 580 and went back to my old GTX 260 core 216, I played Outlast at like 900p upscaled to 1200p on my monitor.
If you want to save some coin, the best bang for your buck is to just target a lower resolution.
