I understand that but it is the driver board that is on the display that counts. say if you had an old vga only display it probably would not work. but seeing as how you have the dual vga/dvi I would suspect it would, although I would have suggested (if you would have asked before purchase to get the display to dvi adapter) but at this point you really cant do much but get the others and return the vga or try the ones you have. dont fret you can always get what you need if it doesnt work.
