2nd monitor wont connect

Hello,
I have just receiver a slightly older monitor that i would like to connect to my desktop as a second monitor. Seeing as it is a older monitor it only has a VGA slot to connect it to but the ports off my graphics card doesnt have a VGA one so i tried connecting it to my Motherboards slot.
Does it have to be connected to my video card for it to work?

    Yes if you have an Add-in card the Onboard video is disabled. You may want to get a DVI to VGA adapter then you can connect it to the video card.
