    Why are you converting the DisplayPort to DVI first? I'm sure you can just go straight to VGA.

    But to answer your question it depends what the first converter takes you to, if it's DVI-I, I reckon it should work, if it's DVI-D then no it won't.

    That'd be the easiest option if you're going to VGA, I think :) If your monitor has DVI as well though, get a DVI cable for digital goodness :)
