IMO it does not matter, you will need a new motherboard due to chipset/VRM requirements change. Really don't know why people still clinging to this false hope of a platform change not needing new motherboards. This is the Intel camp after all. And even if it is AMD, if there is performance enhancement to be had, they would change sockets just as fast.
The only real way to guide yourself is to always get the option that has the MOST pins.
I got 1366 but now I sorta regret it because magny cours has 1944 or something. But then again, that was like a year later...
Like when you buy a new phone or camera, you kinda prefer the one with the most heft to it? Like weight is really related to quality?
