You just need a HDMI to DVI converter/cable such as the one linked below, which you should be able to locate at just about any store locally that sells computers and computer peripherals, or order online.  

 

The digital image willl be much better than the older SVGA connection too.

What exact Lenovo computer are you needing this cable for?     Usually you only find the mini-HDMI ports on laptops and mini chassis, so you might double check..

 

I am pretty sure the H50-55 had the same standard HDMI port that my H50-50 does, but perhaps they have made some changes on some models, and I think the 3000 J105 had only VGA.  

 

If you do indeed have the mini HDMI port, then you will need a Mini HDMI to DVI-D Cable similar to the one linked below, but I would double check.

 

StarTech.com HDCDVIMM1M 1m Mini HDMI to DVI-D Cable 19 Pin [HDMI (C) Male to DVI-D Male]  - 1920 x 1200 Video

https://www.amazon.com/StarTech-com-HDCDVIMM1M-Mini-DVI-D-Cable/dp/B00GJ40AD8

 

My H50 came with a 280w power supply, which was OK for what came originally on the PC, but was too small for what I added, so I replaced it with a 600w power supply when I updated the graphics card.
