Using HD VGA cable. Can't find HDTV setting.

My old xbox had the HDTV setting where you can change it from 480, 720p, 1080i, and 1080p.  I'm using a xbox slim right now with a HD VGA cable to connect to my PC monitor at 1920x1080 resolution.  Am I right to assume that because it am using the vga cable, there is no 1080p setting?

 

I went into the "display" setting and couldn't find it.  I was at least expecting to see a greyed out option for this since there is one for the screen format setting.

The official MS VGA cable will do 1080p, I'd suggest that your tv doesn't support that resolution over VGA. If there is an HDMI input on your monitor try a HDMI cable.

It looks pretty crisp in the menu when playing MW3 and the intro video looks nice.  I just remember seeing a huge difference between the 480 and 1080i setting on my old xbox component cable.  So I just wanted to make sure I'm getting the best picture quality I can get.  

My monitor is a Dell u2311h and it handles my PC really well.

Well it seems your monitor has hdmi input. Just try it and you may get the 1080p setting. I can't help you if you insist on using VGA cable.

The resolution for 1080p is 1920x1080; they're the same resolution.

[quote user="OrangeSlate"]Am I right to assume that because it am using the vga cable, there is no 1080p setting?[/quote]Correct. With VGA you'll have several resolution options, but not the more TV-centric 480p/720p/1080i/1080p. 1080p, as pointed out, is just another way to write 1920x1080 in most cases.
