Depends what you are doing with it.

GTX1070 15/20
GTX1070Ti 19/20
GTX1080 20/20
GTX1080Ti 28/32

So almost double the silicon, memory speed increase, memory capacity. At the expense of additional power draw.

If your PSU is up to the task, and you want for FPS, and your CPU isn't holding back the game engine you are running. Should be a decent performance increase, for somewhat minimal cost.

Power supply is fine then. Screen resolution and the game(s) in question would be next.

If you have a 1080p 60hz monitor, then no, probably not worth it. If you are running 1440p or 4K, absolutely. Even 1080p 144hz+ would benefit in many game titles.
