Default Hooking Up New Build: Need Help

Hi guys,
I'm connecting my new computer and ran into a bit of a snag with my monitor. The plug on my monitor is 15 pin, but on the back panel of my tower there is no matching socket. Instead there is a socket with 28 pins, 4 on the far left and 3 rows of 8 on the right hand side. If anyone can point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated, thanks!

That would be a DVI connector on the back.
What you need (if you have a PCI-e VC it should have come with it) is a DVI to VGA Adaptor in order to hook it up.

I would rather believe and find god doesn't exist than to not believe and find that he does.
