So long as the DVI adapters are both DVI-A it should work. If one is DVI-D it's less likely, unless it performs D-A conversion. It would be a safer bet to just get a Mini-DVI to VGA. There are ones listed specifically for MacBooks, if you just Google "Mini-DVI to VGA adapter"
I have the 2 cables needed for this and upon testing the 2 cables together hooked up to my computer and a screen it works just fine.
Mid to high end graphics cards these days do come with dual (or more) digital display outputs like DisplayPort, HDMI, and DVI. The lower end graphics cards still often come with VGA output, as people with lower end graphics cards will also have lower end monitors. So why does your card have a VGA out..?

Your VGA output is ...
I've ran into this same issue. A DVI-D is digital only port and even though you have a DVI-D adapter, an analog monitor will not work with the dvi "digital" port on your computer. I assume it's not a DVI-I port on your PC? If not you will have to buy an analog/digital converter to get this to work. Also important is to know a DVI "adapter" is not the same as ...
Could you please provide what exactly is the model of the GPU you have in your desktop?
