The 1366 will outlive the 1156 by a long shot.
GO True i7 with either a 920 or 930 and you won't regret it.
LGA 1366 is being dropped out for the LGA 1155 (rumored) socket in Q1 of 2011 for Sandy Bridge


but i7's are still pretty powerful go i7 930 and you won't regret this build till around 2yrs later

P.S money isn't the issue
If money isn't an issue then let's go with an EVGA SR-2, dual Xeon X5650s, 24GB Mushkin Enhanced DDR3 2000MHz, Quad GTX 480s (you can fold on the extra one until the drivers support Quad-SLI), Dual HX1000's, dual (or triple) water cooling loops to cool everything, hell we'll even fab blocks for the PSUs (360 rads up the hoo-hah), and all in a custom built carbon fiber case with Napoleon Bonaparte's signature and JFK's brain for a case badge.

But what chip maker isn't going to replace it's top end socket with something else by then?
