My tower is using this motherboard:

And this processor:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07B41WS48/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I found out from MSI that the processor didn't have any video capability built into it, and I had made the assumption that the HDMI port on the MB meant that video capability was somehow part of the MB. So I begrudgingly bought this:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01AZHOX5K/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Still nothing on any monitor using HDMI, VGA, or DVI (now using the connections on the video card).

What am I missing? Do I have to install the OS with another processor in place, and then switch later? No matter what I try, black screen of nothing.

That was my assumption. Is there an easy way to determine MB vs Processor? It's got to be one of the two, right?
It could be a LOT of things.
