Default Question on Dell OptiPlex GXi

Alright, I'll staet off right away by saying that I know nothing about what could be wrong with this computer.

Ok What I do know is that the computer is a Dell OptiPlex GXi it supposedly has 8GB and 128 MB ram. It's a Pentium II, Model MMP. The problem is, that I just got this computer, free, and nothing comes up on the moniter, when I turn the computer on. I have no idea wheather it has an ON board video card or if there is supposed to be one in plain sight when I open the side of the tower.
If there is supposed to be one, there isn't.

I know the moniter works cause I connected it to another computer to make sure.

I thought it might be the video card, cause I installed an ATI video card on a new computer once that had an ON board video card. And after I installed the new card on it the old moniter port didn't give any screen playback either.

If I do need a new video card, I don't know which one to get.

Can Someone help ?
