LGA 1366 is a dead end. LGA 1155 is still current.

will there be a new chipset imminent? or should I be content with 1155 for now? I want to 'future proof' my system...whatever is the most modern tech is what I aim to achieve

There will be a new socket with Haswell (LGA 1150) in Q2 2013, but LGA 1155 will be current until then. The point, I guess, is that you can't really "future proof" right now.

1155 is a future proof as you can get right now. Unfortunately, intel is at a point in their development cycle that we will 'probably' see a new socket introduced for the next big cpu rollout - although nothing's been made official to the public about that.

Guess I stand corrected. 1150 will be the new socket for Haswell it seems.

If that's true, how have I been reading about LGA 1150 then? I suppose it's not "publicly" official, but everywhere I read says LGA 1150 for Haswell.

Just read your edit. Alright, that clears it up, I guess, lol.

I appreciate the pointers, I just want something that will last me for 5-6 years...would a z77 UDH5 ASUS motherboard paired with i7-3770k do the trick?

Z77-UD5H is a Gigabyte board, and it's an excellent one at that. Tied together with the i7-3770k will give you about as long lasting a system as you can get. 5 years would be reasonable to expect.
