Everytime i open up the app i get this screen that says your graphics card is not compatible with the rifts system software. Is there a way i can get past this screen and move on to setting up the oculus link with my Oculus quest 2 i paid a'lot of money for...0zovcxu1khec.png

You can't bypass it period. I repeat you can't bypass.

If you could bypass it you would just get a black screen. The Rift software is what streams it to your Quest 2
If your card is not capable of doing this then its endgame.

It depends on why it thinks your graphics card isn't supported.
If it's a brand new card that Oculus doesn't recognise yet (like a new 3000 series geforce) then maybe something could be done (mainly wait until they add it).
If it's an Intel GPU, then that isn't Oculus compatible. It will never work.
If it's an AMD or Nvidia card that isn't on the supported Link list, then it doesn't have the required video encoding support or performance required for Link to function. Supported and unsupported list: https://support.oculus.com/444256562873335/

Yeah but most users who get on here who have issues running blame oculus software and there developers for not knowing how to code, and they can do better a job.  When they have no idea how demanding vr is, most succumb to the marketing nonsense that a computer is labeled vr ready, or made for vr.  

And then you have people that never read the specs required and just don't understand.

They are not going to take the minutes to read the truth, but go down the rabbit hole of finding a non existent way to run there quest so badly it negates all the technology that went in to it.

 Fair enough, but I doubt that's what's going on here with the OP. When I installed Oculus a few years back on a borderline system that both CPU and GPU were not supported, I was at least able to install the rift software and had to put up with the warning banners. 
 Of course it's all guess work without knowing what the OP's specs are. I suspect not enough to meet the system requirements to even install the software. https://support.oculus.com/248749509016567/?locale=en_US 
And with link having even higher requirements than rift, https://support.oculus.com/444256562873335/?locale=en_US
 I strongly suspect the OP will have to pay good money for a GPU upgrade if possible or a more capable PC if not.

Whats going on here is that rather than struggle with optomization to run on setups that will never deliver the developers vision, is the software just puts a hard limit. 

What people don't realize it is insanely hard to optomize for lower spec pcs that are a good 2 generations behind the curve.  So the developers drawn a line in the sand.  Running at 4k for 90 fps is near impossible for cards that don't have the headroom.

Also keep in mind developers love headroom to push the graphical power so rather than lock developers to lower spec experiences where they will get frustrated easy trying to deliver something as immersive as vr.  It is simple to set the specs better.
