If you need a new card now, the 6GB of memory won't hurt but at 1080p you would struggle to fill up even half of that - you could argue it's pointless for you at this moment in time. I would put the money towards the extra power of the 780 Ti, as it averages between an extra 5-10 FPS in most games over the 780, and can easily play any game out today at 2560 x 1440/1600 resolution later if you can upgrade your screen. IMO, It struggles at 4K a bit in titles as the 3GB of video memory becomes an issue from benchmarks I've seen.

If you don't need a new card right now, and can wait, this is probably what I would do. The release is delayed though, but should be out in the last quarter of this year.
