Hello, the desktop is HP - OMEN by HP Desktop - Intel Core i5 - 8GB Memory - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 - 1TB Hard Drive - Brushed Aluminum and the monitor is a Samsung - CF591 Series C27F591FDN 27" LED Curved FHD FreeSync Monitor - Silver. Thanks for your reply hope you can help as you will see the back of the desktop where the graphic card slot is there is only one connection for hdmi and there are different connection but those are not for hdmi so how can i connect my monitor and vr both to my graphic card slot. Thanks.

OK, so Im confused as to what the problem is.
The GTX 1060 in your Omen desktop has three video out ports.
The Samsung C27F591FDN monitor has VGA, HDMI and Displayport connections.
The VR headset needs HDMI to connect to.
So its simple... ether get a Displayport cable to connnect the monitor with, or get a HDMI to Displayport adapter to use the other HDMI cable with. Connect to both the Displayport and HDMI port on the GTX 1060 video card.
Is that all you are asking about?
