Why do you need to install the second card as well ? You cannot SLI them though....According to your motherboard's manual, these are the expansion slot specs:

3 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 (x16, x16/x8, x8/x8/x8)
1 x PCIe 2.0 x4 (max at x4 mode) *2
40-Lane CPU-
1 x PCIe 2.0 x4 (max at x4 mode) *2
28-Lane CPU-
2 x PCIe 2.0 x16 (x1 mode)
5 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 (x16, x16/x16, x16/x16/x8, x8/x8/x16/x8, x8/x8/x8/x8/x8 mode) *1
