DVD-D to VGA with KVM Switch

I have the IOGear MiniView™ Micro USB PLUS KVM Switch with audio and cables (GCS632U) http://us.iogear.com/product/GCS632U/ .

I have a new Nvidia Geforce GTX 670 and want to do dual monitors (both VGA). There is one DVI port on the card, which allows you to put a DVI to VGA adapter on it to go to a VGA monitor. The other port is DVI-D and only allows a DVI cable connection to DVI enabled monitor.

I know that you cannot get a DVI-D to VGA adapter http://www.amazon.com/Male-DVI-D-Female-VGA-Adapter/dp/B007EA48MA and put it on a DVD-D port and then go to a VGA monitor, but can you do the same and go to this VGA KVM switch (GCS632U) I have and  then the KVM to the VGA monitor and have it work?

Please no guessing. Thanks.

Huh. Well I'll be darned it only has one DVI-I port.

Looks like it's time for at least one new monitor, my friend.

Thanks Frosty555. That was an excellent answer. Issue is that I am using all of this with a KVM  Switch that is VGA between 2 computers. Already have DVI compatible monitors. Need to get new DVI-D KVM switch. Single-Link will be fine.
That was an excellent answer.
