Question About DVI to HDMI Adapters

My graphics card has one HDMI port, one DVI-I port, and one DVI-D port. I was told that, by use of an HDMI adapter, you can convert all of these into HDMI-out (with One of these for example). My question is, will the picture be any different using one of these than if I just left the DVI ports how they were on the graphics card? One of my monitors does not have an HDMI-in but came with a cable that connects its DVI-D to HDMI. It just seems like if my GPU outputs in DVI, then converts it into HDMI before sending it through the cable, then the cable converts it back to DVI into the monitor, would anything actually change? I understand that outputting in DVI from the video card will not also output sound like HDMI would, but that is not my concern. I am merely curious if the picture would change. Thank you in advance.

    The HDMI standard is based on DVI, but with audio added. So no, the picture will not change.
