The Intel G41 chipset uses the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X4500. It is not capable of HD resolution. The monitor is a Full HD monitor.

I would recommend using an HD 6450 (requires 400 watt power supply) for 1080p resolution. - GIGABYTE GV-R645-1GI Radeon HD 6450 1GB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Video Card

A standard HDMI cable is not capable of 1080p, you must use a high-speed HDMI cable.
