I am only playing on 1080p but i want to keep games maxed out for the next year or 2. Should i upgrade to the 8gig 980 or just stay 4gig?

A single 980 really isn't powerful enough to use over 4gb of vram so with a single 980 the 8gb of ram would be totally pointless... Only reason you would want to get the 8gb model is if you have 2-3 of these cards.

So no do not get the 8gb model unless you plan to sli or tri-sli.

sli with the 4gig one is fine at 1080p-1440p, if you are wanting to do 4k or triple monitor setups then the 8 gb models MIGHT give you slightly better performance... Stay with your 4gb card.
