Future employers rarely take GPA into consideration.
A high GPA is essential when applying for grad schools (usually accounts for between 50-70% of your application, along with interview processes, references, letters, portfolios etc.)
Again, I'm not sure if your standing as an "honors student" holds much ground, unless your honors courses are relevant to your graduate studies.
My personal university experience (because I'm in a fairly similar position) tell me that "honors" just means more work and stress with minimal advantages.
Just my 2cents.
