I have a model B raspberry PI which I currently use with my USB miners; however, I also have a SAPPHIRE HD 5830 1GB GDDR5 PCIE just laying around doing nothing.

I am wondering if I can connect the aforementioned graphics card to my PI and then use the graphics card to mine.

If possible, would someone please post like a short instruction guide on what to buy to connect the two and if I need to code anything to establish a connection?

I am a newbie at HARDWARE, so any additional help would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

No that won't work, the cheapest way to get the card mining if you already have a spare USB stick (for scrypt/vert BAMT), 1gb ddr3 and PSU would be either of these boards, the Atom ITX takes laptop memory and would require a riser too. Both are fanless and will draw less than 18w under full CPU load.
