The motherboard supports PCIe 2.0, the video card is PCIe 3.0 and will claim backward compatibility.

The motherboard was made 8 years ago and did not know what the future held. https://ark.intel.com/products/40079/Intel-Desktop-Board-DP55SB Intel® Desktop Board DP55SB Product Specifications

I would suggest a firmware update to the video card, if one is available that addresses PCIe 2.0 compatibility.

Otherwise, look for a card that is truly backward compatible.

My personal opinion is, if you have a nice, new graphics card, get a nice, new motherboard. Otherwise, you will be operating in a degraded mode with PCIe 2.0.

ASRock H61M-GE PCI 2.0 too, but this video card, works.

Still a compatibility issue. Two different chipsets. One board's implementation of PCIe 2.0 is more or less strict than another board's.

Also, the DP55SB is no longer supported.
