Yes, if the resolution and frequency is the same, then the picture will be in the same place...
The OSD built into most monitors will usually have a status display that tells you the horizontal and vertical sync rates. Here's the catch, the frequencies ARE the same on both boxes (they're off by .Hz actually but that's not going to make a huge difference).
