Since you have a dedicated GPU, you need to plug in the monitor to the video card. And you shouldnt just have a HDMI port on your card. You should have dual link DVI, HDMI, and displayport. Youll need an adapter to get it to work.

I linked it above. You need a HDMI-VGA adapter. If your CPU has interested graphics on it. You'll be able to use that until you can get a adapter.
