    HDMI PC to VGA Projector

    Hey folks.
    I need some AV gurus to answer a question for me...

    We've secured a great deal on some new Lenovo A320 Idea Centre PCs that we're installing in a couple of classrooms over the summer. One drawback is that they only have HDMI output for video. This isn't a problem in one room as we've just installed a new Casio LED projector with HDMI input. However, in the other room we have a Toshiba projector with only VGA input.

    Would something like this work? Or will I need a "proper" converter like this?

    A middle ground option could be something like this but it appears to be converting the wrong way (VGA to HDMI) - does this matter?

    Cheers in advance,
    Will

    Cheers buddy,
    Exactly what I was looking for.
    Will

    EDIT: Although, by the looks of it, I'll need a DVI to HDMI cable as that converter appears to have DVI and VGA connections on it.

    Looks like this will do it without the need for extra cables - HDFury Gamer Edition HD Fury (PS3 VGA Cable) - #JMartdigital

    Funny how certain items are just a nightmare to find!

    Yes there was an amazon link to that as well from the second page I linked but as it said PS3 I didn't look at it.
