I currently have this monitor.

I currently have this graphics card.

I'm aware that Freesync does not work with my graphics card. My 1080 has been excellent and I've been able to play at 4K without any problems.

I was wondering if there are any ATI cards that can compete with the 1080 and if it would even be worth the move to use Freesync.

Try get a G-Sync monitor for a good price.

If you want to go AMD graphics + Freesync, then I'd wait a generation or two as their top end GPUs right now aren't much different to your GTX 1080.

This. The top-end AMD offering (they're AMD now, not ATI) is the Vega 64, which is roughly equivalent to the GTX 1080. You'd be paying ~$500 for the same performance. If you're careful and patient when looking around, you can find a G-Sync monitor in that price range for sure. Maybe not with all the bells and whistles, but if you're going to spend ~$500 on your PC right now you'd be much better off with a new monitor than changing to an AMD GPU.
