Your motherboard has two:
 

PCIe x16 v2.0

slots.

The MSI Radeon RX 570 card states that it requires:
 

PCI-e 3.0 Card Slot with room for double wide card

 

However, it then goes on to say that it will:
 

Run in PCI-e 2.0 Card Slot ** with reduced performance ** :(

Think it would be a massive decrease in performance?

She I just start a new build instead?

For a single card, the performance hit would be less than 5% on average.

So just to clarify I would only lose about 5% of the cards capabilities.
