    It appears there are two versions of the A320m: the GA-A320M-HD2 and the GA-A320M-S2H. Which version do you have?

    It's alright, they make motherboard models confusing ha. Are you going to continue to use the hard disk you're upgrading from? You could go with a smaller SSD if you're just using it for the OS, although you do get more bang for your buck at larger capacities.
    Are you just gaming or what do you use your computer for?

    Yes I will be using the hard drive I have installed will the computer run faster if the operating system (windows 10) is on the ssd
    I want to use the ssd for the total war games I have and any other games I decide to buy
    I use the computer for total war games and football manager emails and general internet use

    Yes, you want Windows 10 on the SSD. Generally, game performance and load times aren't affected all that much by an SSD. You can Google the total war games and see how they perform on an SSD just to make sure.

    If you're wanting to go with 1TB:

    MyDigitalSSD BPX Pro

    Sabrent Rocket

    Inland Premium

    Team Group MP34

    If you decide on smaller capacities
    the EX900 is a solid choice:

    500GB:

    250GB:
