The cheaper small ones will only work if your keyboard supports USB itself - they only change the plug rather than do any converting of the signal. If it's a brand new keyboard then it may do (which one is it? I'm surprised any are still coming with PS/2).

Otherwise you'll want one of the bigger and more expensive converters that contain electronics to change the PS/2 signals into USB signals.
