Default DVI-to-VGA

Hey guys, so I bought my new computer, but the monitor cable did not fit into my video card slot. I went to bestbuy and found this product for 16.99 Computers: Computer Accessories: Dynex DVI To VGA Adapter (DX-AP140) | Best Buy Canada Web Store

I asked PC guy and he said it will work, but after coming home I realized that this Adapter is made for APPLE notebook. I plugged it to the back of my video card and to my monitor and everything fits perfectly.

I don't know if I should use the product above for my desktop as it is made for Notebook, I'm afraid it might damage my PC.

Here is the other product I found, Computers: Computer Accessories: Dynex DVI To VGA Adapter (DX-AP140) | Best Buy Canada Web Store

So, will the notebook adapter be fine? Or should I buy the more expansive one?

Thank you in advance, with your help I am one step away from using my new gaming PC.

The adapter you bought will still work for your system. It wont damage anything. Both products you listed are the same.
