My experience with VGA is the exact opposite.  I have a 1280x720 Samsung 
DLP.  Using the same modeline and doing direct comparisons (twinview with 
both connected simultaneously) the image with VGA was horrible, even after 
hours of adjustment.  It ranges from slightly soft to somewhat blurry with 
no consistency from edge to edge.  The DVI/HDMI picture is sharp from edge 
to edge (even with sharpness set to 0 and DNIe turned off).  Of course YMMV.
