If you're looking at a 1366 upgrade to 2011 think carefully. Socket 2011 will be a short lived product because of Intel's new 3D transistor technology. Socket 2011 is just a rehashed Xeon to fill the gap. Remember SkullTrail? LGA771? 1366 enjoyed (and is still enjoying a long life). 2011 won't have any of the new hotness that the revised 1155 will be getting. PCI-e 3.0 for graphics (not storage), integrated USB3 etc. I would steer clear until the revamped Ivy Bridge platform for enthusiasts comes out.
