Compatibility is a relative term. 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/42408/Intel-Desktop-Board-DH55TC Intel® Desktop Board DH55TC 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.
