Using my tv as a display

So, I'd like to use my TV as a display to watch several archived episodes I have of different tv shows and such. The TV only has VGA and component inputs (that I can find, anyway). My computer being a 1st gen intel iMac, has a mini-dvi connector on the back, meaning I'll have to get an adapter and some stuff.
My main worry with this is - will a VGA cable be able to transmit a 1080i resolution? 720p? That's what my TV will do it seems (I think. Bought the TV two years ago, before I even knew what HDTV was.) And how do I set those preferences on the machine? Anyone tried anything similar?

the resolutions are in the monitor section of system pref. I have a tv with the same spec's and I was not able to get it to fit perfectly. Im using DVI cables though.She figured out that the only way to keep from being frozen was to stay in motion,
and long ago converted most of her flesh into liquid.
Now when she smells danger, she spills herself all over, like gasoline, and lights it.
