Your DVI ports must have analogue output (DVI-I or DVI-A). Then you can use those cheap adapter to connect the DVI port with the VGA.

If you are looking to go from digital DVI to analog VGA monitor you need an active DVI-D to VGA converter. These cheap adapters on the market don't do digital to analog video signal conversion and won't work. I would recommend checking Part # SCA-DVI-ANA.

get a dvi-a to vga adapter...that would be enough

dvi-a is analogue
dvi-d is digital
