Hey guys, my PCs specifications are:

GPU: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 Ti 8 GB
CPU: Intel Core i7-8700K 3.7 GHz 6-Core Processor
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3000 CL15

Do you think these specifications, specifically the graphics card would allow me to play 2021 to 2022 AAA games at 1080p with decent performance? I don't know if it's hard to predict requirements for future PC games but a rough prediction would be enough.

That all depends on you. Why anyone would buy a 3070ti only to play 1080p is beyond me but anyways. What do you consider decent performance ? I run a 2080ti with 9900k at 3440x1440 and have no plans on upgrading just as a example. I have a friend who had to have the next big thing and sold his 2080ti for 500 dollars to get a 3080 now he has a 3080ti and i dont think he is satisfied. Chances are you are going to hit a bottleneck at 1080p with you 8700k. Just reme,ber there is no such thing as future proof. The rule of thumb that was taught to me was buy the best you can afford at the time of buying

Just some info....
I run one machine with a GTX 1080 (pretty similar to a 1070 Ti) at 1080p....and I can run the vast majority of games at 60 fps on ultra.

There are a few that struggle to hit 60 all the time.

Witcher 3 comes to mind.

I did not say I had a 3070ti, I said 1070ti

like i said before what can you live with ? I have a 1070 on my other rig and its starting to show its age just a little. Might not be a bad time to sell as the market is very good right now for selling and try to get lucky or just sell your rig and get a pre built or just keep it depends on what kind of settigns you can deal with

Why worry about something that you don't have any control over? You have the card, use it, when you don't want to use it because it's slow, then look at upgrades. Or lower settings so it can run newer games smoother. I have yet to see a modern game that looked bad at Medium or even slightly lower settings. A few extra shadows or sharpness on details don't matter to the gameplay at all.

I'd hold with the 1070ti for as long as possible to give prices a chance to come back down. You'll end up losing a lot of money if you buy now, then prices crash. I'm holding with a 1080 FE in one machine and a 1050Ti in another until prices come back down.

This is a highly subjective question. If you are running a stock 60 hz monitor getting 300 fps doesn't really matter anyway. After 60 fps you monitor no longer has the ability to render the frames. If you are running a 300hz monitor at 1080p then your rig is already out gunned anyway. Your 8700k is going to be just as much of a limiter in the next two years as your GPU for FPS. So I would put it like this. If you are like me, running cheap monitors at 1080 then your framerate will more than likely be just fine for the next year or two. If you are wanting high refresh gaming monitors than you already need a card upgrade. One big area that I think is going overlooked in the next couple of years though is the fact that prior to 2000 series NVidia ray tracing was not available. As more AAA titles start utilizing it as a mainstream tech all of us with pre ray tracing cards (my 1080ti included) are going to see our game quality go down a fair bit. It takes a large amount of work to do shaders and lighting effects right. Ray tracing just kind of magically makes happen in engine with a lot less effort. I fully expect to see fidelity fall down in pre ray trace cards in the next 2-5 years because design will center around ray trace effect. So it is something to think about. Nothing to worry about today, but something to watch for.

I have 9700K and GTX 1070., and I have a QHD monitor. So far it is fine in any title in 2560x1440 resolution. Not stellar, but OK.

I believe your configuration would be OK for 1920 x 1080 still for some time. But if you are looking for constant 120 and more frame per second, maybe it would be better to buy a recent GPU, if you are eager to pay triple of the MSRP.

The question is, are you even going to have a choice? The latest generation of GPU's are still unobtainable unless you want to shell out 3X it's value to a scalper (don't do it!). Anyhow, this situation is expected to persist for the remainder of the year, and even into Q1 of 2022. Blame the miners...
