    This depends on the monitor.
    If you have a monitor with hdmi, you just need an hdmi cable.

    If you have a VGA or DVI monitor (they have connections that are bigger, like 1.5" wide), you will need a "mini-display port TO dvi" or "mini-display port TO vga" adapter.
    (Check the back of your monitor, dvi is usually white port, lots of square shaped holes, vga is usually blue with round shaped holes)
