The board has no video ports, are you using a graphics card?

Gigabyte AMD Radeon HD 7950 3GB GDDR5 DVI-I/HDMI/2x Mini-Displayport PCI-Express Graphic Card GV-R795WF3-3GD is the GPU I have. Can I connect the vga monitor to this GPU. Will it work?

It should have come with a DVI-I to VGA adapter. If not buy one. HDMI is digital. VGA.is analog. They are not compatible

As suggested, you can use a DVI to VGA adapter. A HDMI to VGA converter would be expensive.
