More about whats difference 1155 lga1366
  1. LGA 1366 is the current high-end platform running the core i7 900 series of processors.

    LGA 1155 is the new Sandy Bridge platform that is replacing the current mainstream platform LGA 1156 that is using core i3, i5 and i7 800 series of processors.
  2. LGA1366 offers triple channel RAM, 32 lanes of PCI express 2.0 and quad and six core CPUs.

    LGA1155 has dual channel RAM, only 16 lanes of PCI Express 2.0 and offers dual and quad core CPUs.

    Like lothdk said, LGA1155 is replacing LGA1156 which offered similar features.

    The 1155 mobo's not only support the current Sandy Bridge cpu's, but they will also support the Ivy Bridge 22mm cpu's coming out next year. There's rumors that the Ivy Bridge will o/c to 6.0ghz. Not only is the Sandy Bridge cheaper than most of the 1366 cpu's, it mops the floor with them.

    Down below is some benchmarks/reviews worth checking out.
