Ah, I noticed that there are 3 plugins at the back of my pc from the graphics card. Am I suppose to plug something in back there? not sure
Yes. That's where the cable plugs in.

Monitor >>>> back of card.
Its the ones with the white plugins.

Well, if you have no cable, how do you expect it to work?

Those are DViD ports. You need to take the final ] out of your image link...

It could be a VGA, or DViD type outlet on the graphics card (or both) plus perhaps HDMi... but check the range of ports on the monitor... you might get away with a straight cable, or require an adapter...
thanks I don't think its HDMI though.. this one is a bit old from 2008-2009 I think. My monitor is newer though it only takes the blue cord. So I guess I will need to buy some kind of converter. one side blue one white.. thanks for the help!
