Relax man. This should do fine for you
And between a computer and monitor you need a male-male connection.
Male = it has spikes
Female = it has holes
As to why we are asking about your card is that none of the MSI 7870 cards have a VGA connector anymore, basically only HDMI, DVI ( 1 or 2 ) and 2 mini Displayport.
And by a short googling of the monitor it is the one that only has a VGA connector. But in any case the cable i linked should do it for you.
