Default What type of ports in graphics card?

Hello all,
While searching for a decent gaming monitor I have stumbled upon the Samsung S27A750D. This monitor has an HDMI and displayport (DP) exit. I'm pretty sure I have an HDMI port, but apperantly HDMI isn't fast enough to transport 120Hz data from computer to screen, so to be able to use the screen to its fullest, I'd need a DP port. I took a picture of 2 ports on the back of the computer, could someone please identify these ports for me please? I don't dare buying monitor just on my limited judgement, without being absolutely sure I can connect the above mentioned Samsung with my computer. Yes, I don't know anything about ports and cables.

I thank you in advance for your time,
Bert
