    Ideally we you need to find out what make / model your motherboard is.

    Is your PC a big brand name machine like HP or Dell, if so exactly what make and model of PC is it? If it is, you may find you are quite limited in upgrade options.

    Can't tell you... A1 doesn't mean anything to me. Look at the site and see if the photo matches what you have... or refer to your manual.
