computer hardware upgrade questions GPU's & processors

Don't see any forums specific to this, so am asking here.

I'm rendering in AI filters. I'm using Topaz and expect for them to use more resources as time goes by.

I'd like to pick up a used GPU after new years maybe, thinking of a EVGA 8g 1070 ti. Would the set up I have (see below) be enough to make this worth while? Or would it bottleneck an 8g? & Is 8g all that much better for rendering than a 6g?

MB; ASUS M5A99X EVO R2.0
CPU; AMD FX(tm)-8320 Eight-Core Processor 3.5ghz

Current GPU; NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 2g
