The Pro/1000GT Quad is an older, end-of-life, PCI-X board for PCI-X bus. The DZ77GA-70K has a PCI Express bus and the old PCI-X boards are not compatible.
You will want to choose one of the newer cards which are compatible with the PCIe standard. The following ARK page should help, as it clearly identifies which cards are current and the compatible bus architecture(s).
Very nice of you to answer so quick and with complete answer with supporting links and alternatives you are a great person and asset to this community. But I still can't help but feel sad that I was mislead by the Marketeers when they hype-up their products by indiscriminately using terms and initials for capabilities that in fact they don't support. Reference this marked up screen captures as my evidence.
This will be my last post on this subject, I'm simply venting (but I hope someone will closely inspect the exhibit above and validate my conclusion) and will seek help for my feelings by watching the Dr Phil marathon this weekend on Lifetime instead of building VLAN targets on my CentOS server.

Hello SanDuck, first of all it is very important to know that according to the picture you attached, the device is a quad port server adapter. There is also a desktop adapter with the same model number.
The PCI and PCI-x connectors are different, please check the picture bellow.
I would recommend you to check the following link. It contains the list of peripherals tested on this board.
