It really depends on when you plan to pull the trigger and how much you want to spend.

It's been rumoured that Intel will release Ivy Bridge based LGA2011 CPU in Q4 2012. If you plan to pull trigger closer to Q4 then you might as well wait for the new CPU to come out.

LGA1155 is 'mainstream' and LGA2011 is 'enthusiast.' What it means is: LGA1155 will almost always offer better bang for buck. LGA2011 may have same amount of features but will have better capabilities. For example, LGA2011 will have enough PCI Express channels to accommodate multiple video cards at their full capability wher as LGA1155 may have to split the channels and possibly limit the card's full potential.
