I bought a new PSU and New GFX card and an adapter because the GTX 560 has 2 DVI connectors. So I seated the GFX, Put in the pins, try both slots with the adapter and the monitor(VGA), but NOTHING APPEARS.

I tested with old GFX(520) and monitor is fine. I tried reseating GFX card, different 6 pins from the PSU, different VGA monitor and adapter, replugging in the cords for PSU and Monitor, onboard VGA slot but none of these worked.

I can't see or do anything with the VGA Monitor unless it's with the old GFX card. Please help!

how do you connect the GFX 520 to the monitor? Same cable, same adapter, same port on back of monitor?

Your links are broken, so I can't tell which EVGA card you have. But to use VGA from a DVI connector on the card, the connector has to have the 4 pin holes surrounding the flat blade. Those are the VGA signal. Likewise, the adapter has to have the 4 pins surrounding the flat blade. Does your setup have that?
