Ok I have the following board and want to get the best possible processor.  
I would like to know the best possible processor and the best processor for price.

I thought I had tried to order the best possible LGA1156 processor but I did something wrong because I had to send it back after it was a definite non-match

LGA-1156 is the socket type -- the i7 and i5 LGA1156 is the recommended CPU for that motherboard. Sure they shipped you what you ordered?

Check out the CPU installation video... just for reference.

Can you upload a picture of the motherboard?

You can find here the list of compatible processors: http://www.evga.com/support/motherboard/legacy/

Looks like for P55 motherboards, the best processor is Core i7 880 - 3.06 GHz, if you're not interested in overcloaking, or Core i7 875K - 2.93 GHz, if you want to overclock it.

HTH,
Dan

Do yourself a favor and toss the board :-)

A Haswell Core i5-4570 will notably outperform the best Core i7 you can get for that board;  and unless you can find one on ebay, a NOS ("new old stock") Core i7-860/870 will likely cost you almost as much as an i5-4570 AND a new Haswell motherboard !!

... and if you're willing to spend a bit more for a Haswell i7-4770, it will double the performance of the earlier Socket 1156 i7's


... But if for some reason you have to use that board, look for a Core i7-860 or 870
