Default tv with dvi

alright, my dad has a tv with a port that is identical to this in the back:


and my computer has a standard vga output. so, if i get an adapter like this:


and plug it into the back of my tv, and then use a vga cable to connect my pc to the pc to the adapter, shouldnt i be able to use the tv as a monitor? or, would i need dvi output from my pc?
