Increasing the resolution to 2560x1440 would be more beneficial to image quality than increasing settings. You can probably get a 1070 Ti to work hard at 1920x1080@60hz, it just isn't a good use of resources.
Well I got an Acer Nitro Something 1440p 144Hz monitor during Black Friday and I have to run it at 0.75x resolution at medium settings to get 40 to 60fps. I tried to run natively at 1440p but has to use low settings and, in my opinion, it looked a lot worse like that than medium settings at 1080p on a 1080p monitor. For me, things like higher draw distance presents a better use than higher resolution in terms of "better", which for me is "more believable" graphics.
Edit - this is RDR 2 with my 1070ti and my 3700x!
On all games ive had to drop settings dramatically to get 100fps at 1440p - after all I am asking the GPU to render twice as many pixels, nearly twice as fast!
