Looks like you have an integrated chipset directly on your motherboard, no video card...

Features & Benefits

If you really do have a empty PCIE slot on your motherboard you should probably only have to look at this search listing on newegg:

Newegg.com - 1, PCI Express 2.0 x16, Desktop Graphics / Video Cards, Video Cards & Video Devices, Computer Hardware

These are PCI cards with hdmi outputs. You would just need to load the drivers, install the card, and disable the onboard video in the bios.

Davey~do has you hooked up, Stump. He's done all the hard work for you. Now you just need to pick one of them out and install it. The only tricky part will be disabling the BIOS, but there are many folks on the site that can help walk you through that... Give me a call if you need some help!

9 out of 10 times you don't even need to disable the onboard video, it does it automagicly. Plug it in, plug the monitor into it, video will be in "limp" mode (default crap), install the drivers, boom.
