Yes, you can. As with any adapter, you will lose quality, but the difference will be minimal.

So, what if I bought one of those for my graphics card, and one for my monitor, and used an HDMI cabel in between, would it look better or the same as my DVI cable?

The same or worse. DVI and HDMI basically use the same digital signal, and the adapters would just make the quality worse depending on the quality of the adapter.

Ok, thats what I thought, you say they use the same signal, so does that mean, that for video, they have the same quality?

640x480 is the resolution of a standard tv.
