You need a graphics card. The H55 motherboards need a Core i3 or Core i5 600 series processor which has an integrated graphics chip on the CPU, if you want to use the video output ports on the motherboard. The i7 860, does not have a graphic chip, and thus you need a video card, and connect it to the display from the output on the graphics card, not the one on the motherboard.
