ECS H61H2-MV V1.0 Essentials PCI-E slot version

So i have this motherboard (written in the tittle) i want to know does this motherboard have pci-e slot generation 2 or 3. Because on the box and on their website ecs claims that it has pci-e 3.0 but on the board it says pci-e 2.0 and when i check on gpu-z it says my graphics card is running on pci-e 2.0 slot but supports 3.0. My card is msi amd r7 260x. Is this a feature of the graphics card that i don't know or is it the motherboard.
And please don't say things like "get another board" i'm on a strict budget. I won the graphics card from a giveaway.

thanks in advance

    The version 3 PCI Express is based on the processor you are using. It has to be a 3rd gen Ivy Bridge.
