SOURCE: DVI cable not working
If you still have your old monitor plug it back in for a bit and load the drivers for the new monitor (from the disk which came with the new monitor). Right click on your desktop and choose properties and set your display resolution to something like 1024 x 768. Shut down the pc and connect your new monitor to it with the dvi adapter. If it is recognised ok you can then set the resolution from 1024 x 768 to the recommended amount for your new screen. The refresh rate is also important as some lcd screens only work at a certain level. There should be an auto switch on the monitor and if you press this it sets the display to optimum, - or should do.

SOURCE: what dvi cable do i need?
Any bog standard dvi cable should work. As should a dvi to vga converter. Dvi is by far the better interface, and I would highly recommend using it, without any converters. I don't believe you can up convert vga to dvi, but you can certainly downgrade a dvi signal to vga, but i can't see why you would want to...

For Motherboard interface:
mini tower version of the Optiplex GX520 appears to have one PCI Express Slot. other cases don't appear to have anything.
Check the photos on the link below to match up your form factor
For monitor, make sure you have a DVi port or something like that & that your card has a matching port or that you can get an acceptable adapter. If monitor not DV capable, HD video card will not help you much.
