Default VGA to DVI upconversion?

Hi all... I have a Sony LCD projection without a VGA input. I only have a DVI input. Would I have upconversion with a VGA to DVI adapter cable?

There are several type of DVI cables. If your projector has DVI-D (Digital) then a simple VGA to DVI-I cable will not work.

If what I said makes no sense to you I recommend reading this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dvi

How is the component video quality on the tv? Is there a difference in quality between the VGA and component? I always remembered VGA akways being sharper but the xbox 360 does have a sharp look from component video.

If I'm not mistaken, the component cables will limit you to 1080i for HD-DVD movies (for the 360 drive). The VGA cable does full 1080p.
