If you monitor has the correct input port, it should work, you can still use old CRT monitors with a GTX Titan, so there's really no "handling" of video cards, they just work. Your monitor may not automatically detect which input has a signal, look for an input button that cycles through the different inputs and see if that gets you there (may also be in a menu rather than a button).

thank you for your help but I have already tried all of that, even tried with hdmi and vga both said the same thing even after cyleing through vga and hdmi, no signal. Well if its the case that any moitor can be used with any gpu, is my monitor broken?? but yet still has power and can display no signal

Do you have a laptop or another computer you can try it with? It does sound like a bad monitor if it works with your TV just fine.

in Catalyst Control Center, go to 'My digital flat panels' then scaling options, and slide the slider to adjust the over/underscan, should fix it :)

That should be the setting you need from the sound of it, the new version should have it, though recent versions have as well...
