Monitor problems

Let me start off by saying Im an idiot when it comes to computers. Please bear with me.

I bought this monitor
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236067

and this desktop.

I've plugged the monitor in to the desktop using the dvi cable provided. One end of it is attached to the monitor and the other end is plugged into the computer. When I turn on the monitor, I get a No dvi signal message. I tried hooking it up with the Vga cable and I got no vga detected. I dont have an hdmi cable laying around so i havent tried that yet. I can't keep but wondering if I should be plugging something into the graphics card on the back of the computer. (It has three slots.) Nothing that came with the desktop or monitor will fit into the holes on the graphics card.

Am I hooking this thing up wrong or this there is some other problem?
