Have a look at Digren's guide:

Starting off, I agree with Digren and would tend to match socket bonuses and go for things with mastery:

Yellow/prismatic - mastery
Blue - mastery/stamina
Red - mastery/parry

As you get better gear and reach 102.4% combat table coverage, most people start to regem to stamina.

There's a case for ignoring socket bonuses when stacking stamina - theckhd has posted some useful information about the trade-offs:

For PvP, it's a whole other ball game. For casual BGs, I go for strength to help kill stuff, but dedicated flag carriers in rated BGs etc would go resilience.
