Question Is this SSD compatible with my motherboard?

You would need a PCIe addon card for it to function, like this

There certainly are cheaper options, but they tend to be brands with no reputation. Startech is reputable.

However, unless you already own the SX8200 Pro, you're probably better off just buying a good SATA3 2.5" drive. Most users won't notice a speed difference in daily use, and you don't have to populate an expansion slot.

While you can use an adapter for that drive in a PCIe slot, you can't boot from it.

A much better (and less expensive) option would be a 1TB SATA III 2.5" SSD.
100% compatible, bootable, and the vast majority of people won;y see any user facing difference.
