New GFX Card w/ DVI-I - VGA Adapter -> No Monitor Signal
I honestly have no clue what to do, I been googling forever and none of them seem to be for me, so I decided to post here.
Ok so I bought a new GFX Card : EVGA GTX 560
Amazon.com: EVGA GeForce GTX 560 1024 MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 2DVI/Mini-HDMI SLI Ready Graphics Card, 01G-P3-1460-KR: Computers & Accessories
A new PSU to go with it
SeaSonic S12 Energy Plus SS-650HT 650W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS1...
And I have a old ass DELL monitor that uses a VGA plug, like 10 years+ old.
My specs I think is
SO My problem is I seated the graphics card, connected the PSU, bought
Amazon.com: StarTech DVI to VGA Cable Adapter, M/F (DVIVGAMF): Electronics
(StarTech DVI to VGA Cable Adapter, M/F (DVIVGAMF)
and plugged that into the DVI port of my GTX 560, plugged in the 2 6-Pins, and plugged in my VGA Cable after the DVI adapter. Everything turns on fine but the monitor recieves no signal. I tried another VGA Monitor and it also said it couldn't detect a signal.
I HAVE TRIED:
Reseating the GFX multiple times
The old GFX Card & Monitor works fine
Replugging cables of Monitor, PSU and outlet
Using my brothers VGA Monitor and Adapter
Both DVI Ports
Please help! I would prefer not having to buy a new monitor and just use my old VGA monitor.
Thanks for reading.

I asked on the EVGA forum, no response. And I don't know how to word it on google. I mean would that really happen? EVGA | Important Notice: HDMI Adapter must read! (*Please Note* Reimbursement has ended) | Important Notice: HDMI Adapter must read! (*Please Note* Reimbursement has ended) said they shipped out generic adapters for their products so I don't think that is it.
