Socket 775 and LGA 775 are the same socket, for use by Intel processors. The LGA stands for "Land Grid Array," which describes the socket and the location of the pins. Traditional sockets are "Pin Grid Arrays," which means that the pins are located on the processor, while on LGA sockets, the pins are located on the motherboard, within the CPU socket.
