    HDTV comes in following native resolutions:

    720p60: 1280 × 720 pixels, progressive encoding with 60 frames per second.

    1080i50: 1920 × 1080 pixels, interlaced encoding with 50 fields (25 frames) per second.

    A screen having a native resolution of 1440x900 will have to resize the image. Something that is often spotted by viewers as an out of focus image and stressful thing to watch. It's better to have the resolution (especially the lines) as native resolution compared to your source material.

    720p = 1280x 720

    1080i = 1920x1080

    Yes. Normal monitor cables are fully capable of supporting that resolution. The previous poster is confusing your reference to it being a "VGA" cable as meaning it is only capable of VGA resolution, which is 800x600 pixels. A standard RGB/VGA/DB-15 monitor cable is capable of much more than 1440x900.
