I did a bit of research on this when I got my Westinghouse 42" LCD  
and came to the conclusion that 1080i runs just fine with single link  
DVI, but 1080p requires dual-link DVI since there isn't enough  
bandwidth to display 1080p data over a single link DVI cable. That  
didn't stop me from trying, though. I got big weird bands on the top  
and bottom of the screen. Of course it's debatable if 1080p is even  
worth the trouble, but since my display could handle it, I decided to  
go for it. Now I'm all set when I want to upgrade to whichever high  
density DVD format prevails.
