    Since that adapter only includes HDMI, DVI and DisplayPort as output, you are limited to HDMI, which is okay of course. But that adapter does not have a VGA output.

    It offers a bigger resolution, as HDMI is limited to 1920 x 1200 pixel, but other than that, HDMI is fine.
    I just mentioned VGA because you mentioned it.

    Ok, thanks for your help. All I was really worried is if it would even work, but it looks like it would.

    Thanks!
