Need advice on an Nforce Mobo

Im putting together a computer for my dad. To save costs, we went with an Nforce type board - an Asus A7N8X-X to be exact. This is going to sound really stupid, but since the video is on-board, how do I plug in my monitor?? There isn't an input for my cable from the monitor. I feel like an idiot for asking this question, Im just dumbfounded. Im prepared to plug in an old video card, but that can't be the proper solution. Thanks in advance!!

The video isn't on-board on that board.

Network, audio, USB and Firewire are on-board.

Yeah, no onboard video on that board. The Asus A7N8X-VM has that.

If you want video on an n-force board, you have to go with the IGP chipsets. There's a very nice Biostar mobo that has the IGP set @ newegg.com that runs $65, and it's rock solid.
