If you're getting the extra VRAM for 1440p, it'd be better to get the GTX 1070 and have the power to push frames at that resolution for current and future AAA games.
I remember how people at the time were telling me not to get the 1GB ATI 5770... that it would not be quite worth it...
That same ATI 5770 played Witcher 3 7 years later in large part due to the 1GB of VRAM. That is called longevity and value.
Games already use more than 4GB at 1080P. The new Mirror's Edge, MODS (PC gaming after all), future titles and 1440P (this card would do well at it).
It does help in the end.
