what is the difference between a motherboard's socket and chipset?

I've ordered a motherboard with an AMD3 socket and an amd 480x crossfire chip set. I've chosen the AMD Phenom II X4 840 processor, but I haven't purchased it yet. I know the socket is a key thing to look out for when matching motherboards and processors, but what indicator is the chip set?
Specifically: do I need to take the chip set into account when selecting other hardware. If yes, what hardware?

The socket is where you would put the AMD Phenom II X4 840 processor, .. Every mother states what socket it uses.. AM1, AM2, and AM3 are AMD cpu's,.. LGA sockets are for Intel cpu's. So when buying a motherboard/processor- you need to make sure they match each other's socket type. The chipset is just the type of chipset the motherboard uses itself.

All you need to know when building/updating a computer is the following:

Motherboards Power pin type (20 pin or 24 pin)
Motherboards socket type
Motherboards ram type
Motherboards hard disk connection type (sata or IDE cable)
Motherboards card slots type (pci/e or AGP)

Processor socket type
(which matches the motherboard's)

RAM
(which matches the Motherboards ram type)

Hard Drive
(which matches the motherboards hard disk connection type)

Video card
(which matches the Motherboards card slots type)

Power Supply
(Which matches Motherboards Power pin type)
