Honestly, 3070Ti at 65k makes no sense, better increase the budget by ~10k for 3080. It is not even 10% faster than 3070, still has 8GB VRAM, more VRAM would have helped it. At least 3070 is like 12-13% faster than 3060Ti. So depending on price, usually just pick one among 3060Ti or 3070 or even 6700XT (beware of lack of DLSS here).

My 3070 is also potent for 4K gaming but 8GB VRAM hurts it. FH5 with VRAM leak issue can't run it at extreme preset with background apps, I get 84fps on benchmark run but in game after sometime I get a VRAM full warning. Also, FC6 at 4K with ultra HD textures has poor performance on 8GB VRAM.

I never thought 8GB VRAM will fall short for 1440p gaming!! I understand the texture packs are getting heavier each year but thought 1440p at Ultra preset(not all but most games) is fine for 8GB VRAM and only 4K needs higher VRAM size.
What happens once you get VRAM full warning inside game, does it affect performance/visuals ?

I have a 1440p display which 32GK650F. Should I upgrade my GPU to either 3060ti or 6700xt?

Are you not getting 144fps in the games you play? If you are really dissatisfied with current performance then you can upgrade, it's upto you how do you want to spend money.. Both 3060Ti and 6700XT are not that powerful than 6600XT but cost more for okay-ish performance gain, especially 6700XT. Now you can find Zotac 3060Ti below 50K. If you really want to upgrade, go for 3070 model which has decent cooling performance.

VRAM leak is an issue/bug in FH5. FH5 just shows an error message after some time, can potentially continue playing by closing background apps to reduce VRAM usage by those apps. I see 1.5GB VRAM usage with my 2 monitors & just the browser running.

Normally, 8GB VRAM is fine for 1440p ultra, not for 4K though. 3070 is powerful enough for 4K ultra in many games though, that's the sad part. It is like laptop 3050Ti GPU which is powerful for 1080p ultra, but 4GB VRAM causes issues in certain games.

I played CP 2077 at 1440p with ultra textures w/o issues. That is one of the most demanding games currently. I saw upto 7.3GB total VRAM usage in that, avg at 6 - 6.5GB.

does the memory leak issue in FH5 plague cards with lower VRAM (ie those with 4-6 gb ram like rtx 2060/1060 6gb etc)?

Will a 3060 12gb fare better than 3060ti in situations where more vram is required?

3060Ti is a better card and will last you longer than 3060.

Yes, more VRAM will help for sure, but 3060Ti is always better otherwise.

In my old laptop with 2060 6GB, after an hour of gaming, my fps used to start dropping. I was playing at 1080p, didn't get a VRAM full error though. I didn't observe that on my PC, but get error at extreme preset at 2K after some time, that's all. I recently saw some texture issues, so keeping textures at high these days.
