What the difference between the 1155 and the 1366 cpu sockets? Is it just the pins or even performance wise?
Cause I'd really like this mobo:
http://www.intel.com/Products/Desktop/Motherboards/db-D...
but it only supports 1155.

They are totally different platforms and need totally different CPUs.
Summary
1366 supports more PCIE lanes and supports i7 9XX processors
1155 supports i5 & i7 processors with numbers beginning with 2 is a newer technology which replaces 1156. It is also alot cheaper than 1366.

If you need your new system in the next 2-3 months... you might be forced to look at the LGA1366 solution. Check one of the many threads on the forum describing the H67/P67 chipset issue.

SB processors themselves are great! If you can wait, the Z68 chipset will supposedly not exhibit the SATA2 issue... around the time H67/P67 'fixed' chipsets reach wide distribution (April-ish).

If you have the patience then wait it out. Sandy Bridge CPUs have fantastic performance and overclocking headroom while running cool/efficient. (4.6-5ghz on air)

1366 CPUs are still good, but Sandy Bridge being nearly the same price is definitely worth the wait IMO.
