Do you need SLI? Lots of Memory? (VMs) Video encoding 24/7?

You can do SLI okay on LGA1155, but 2011 might be a tad better, especially for tri-gpu situations. You can already get 32GB of ram for 1155 so unless you really have a lot of things you need to run, it shouldn't be an issue. If you're constantly doing encoding then going 6 core vs 4 will always win out. If you have a ton of add-in cards then 2011 would be a better choice as the slots are divided up in some interesting ways on 1155.

If you're just going to run 1 GPU, 1 SSD, and do some video work than 1155 is more than enough.
