If you want to save money now and don't plan on upgrading then i'd personally choose socket 1155, but with future-proofing in mind socket 2011 is the way to go.
I would disagree on that being future proofing. I'm pretty certain the new 2011 boards would be a lot better than the old ones. And who knows how big of a performance difference in games it would actually make if any at all over Ivy, or Haswell which are both 1155 sockets, right? Maxwell doesn't even have a release date but is stated to be 2011, right?
If I were future proofing and wanted performance in the now I'd go with one of the non high ends but still good overclocking 1055 builds. If more CPU power is needed I'd replace my CPU with haswell. If more power is still needed, sell the motherboard and the CPU and invest in a new motherboard/cpu. As long as you keep staying away from the high end you'll probably save just as much if not more than someone who sticks only with the high end parts for x amount of years while enjoying better performance than they do since your always upgrading to the next midrange. This is what could make the 3570k better than the 3770k.
For all we know Haswell might be a super great overclocker that actually makes intel rethink how the chips are made again leaving us stuck with a poor overclocking Maxwell. It could happen.
