Male VGA to Female DVI-D Adapter not working

I bought this adapter because I had an old VGA only monitor laying about for dual screen and my GPU doesn't have a plug for it. I tested it on my 1080p moniter but it failed to display video. The DVI-D cable works but it fails through the adapter. Is the adapter just bust? I bought for $3 from a radioshack sale.

    You need an Active Adapter Converter Cable for the newer cards usually $20.00-$30.00.

    At that point its just cheaper to buy a crap monitor with the right plug. Thanks mate!
