Yes, it will work fine. The graphics card supports PCIe 3.0 while your motherboard supports PCIe 2.0. But they're fully compatible and the graphics card doesn't need the extra bandwidth available in PCIe 3.0 mode.

3.0 provides twice as much bandwidth. Even the best graphics cards today aren't fully using up what a 16-lane 2.0 slot offers though.
