You must mean 1920x1080 (that's where the "1080" in 1080i comes  
from). I have a 42" LCD that does 1080p and 1080i. I've set it up on  
both via dual-like DVI and it looks great either way. If I actually  
had some 1080p content to display, I imagine 1080p would look even  
better. :) I've even tried different resolutions over VGA and it  
still looks good to me. Like most people, you'll find that trial and  
error is the way to go. :)
