What do I need to know when Intel CPU shopping?

I'm new to upgrading the CPU. What do I need to look for to make sure the CPU is compatible with my motherboard? I currently am using a Intel Core i7 870 on an ASUS (P7H55-USB3) Intel Chipset motherboard.

  2. You need to look at the type of socket your motherboard accepts (LGA XXXX).
