Buy a new cable or adapt the one you have.If you are brave get 2 old cables somewhere and perform a sex change.

Are you sure you are looking at the correct socket on the PC? I've never seen a male video card connector. If you have a standard analog monitor you need to plug it in to a graphics card on your PC. It connects to a female 15 pin VGA port.

If you have a digital monitor it will connect to a multi-pin DVI port (also female).
