Welcome to the forum.

I am not a HP employee.


Your PC has DVI-I and DVI-D out on the rear I/O panel.


You need an adapter to go from the monitor HDMI or Display Port in to the DVD out on the PC.


Amazon (Link) has options. 


DVI does not support audio but it should provide video from the PC to the new Omen monitor.
