Step one - Take video card out.
Step two - Use onboard graphics.
Step three - Crack the video card upside the head of the guy that sold it to you.
Step four - Buy a better video card.

I think your integrated graphics are better than the GT610, so take out the 610 if you aren't going to return the PC and plug the monitor into the motherboard.

And just so you know, http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=2991#sp that's my case and I'm using the stock power supply.

stock power supply.

Pop the side of the case off and tell us what's written on the side of the PSU before you buy anything.

You will have to open up your PC to replace the graphics card. There is no way around that. It's not hard though.

You are going to need to replace that video card.

These things are literally built to be put together, so it's not like it's going to be unintuitive or anything.

Yeah open up your case and take a look at the PSU. Maybe just take a picture of it and post it here. You might need a Philips screwdriver but that's about it. If your case has thumb screws you won't need any tools at all.

Oh my gosh I lol'd so hard at GT 610.
I picked up one of those when my 680 died cause the error I was getting on my mobo's number display could have been a vid card problem or a mobo problem. Got that thing dirt cheap to check if it was my mobo. Didn't have on-board graphics cause I have a 3820. But yeah, since you're a noob, here's a useful link for you: http://www.videocardcomparisons.com/reviews/nvidia-geforce-nomenclature-explained/
