skt is a abbreviation for Socket. LGA are the letters for Land Grid Array which is how the processor connects to the motherboard. Before LGA intel processors used pins on the cpu to connect into holes in the cpu socket on the motherboard. LGA does away with this by using what look like dots on the cpu. Thes dots are pressed against similar dots in the cpu socket on the motherboard. This is for less problems installing the cpu into the MB. All 775 sockets are the same. If you really wanted to get technical you would call the socket on the motherboard a " Land Grid Array 775 Socket".

Well, not exactly. Some motherboards are not capable of the 800 front side bus so the processors that are built for the 800 fsb cannot be used. Some motherboards cannot use the pentium D processors while normal pentium 4 's can be used. You will have to look at the motherboard spec's and see what processors it can use. Usually i look for the manufacturers website for the PDF manual and downloading it. Upon opening the manual i will find what processors will work in it. Every motherboard i buy i will download the manual and read it befire buying.
