Samsung Syncmaster 2333SW Xbox 360 VGA problem

First of all, sorry if this is the wrong forum for this particular thread. I just now joined up in order to ask this question to a competent community.

Basically, I'm attempting to run a regular xbox 360 through the official vga cable to my samsung syncmaster 2333sw. This monitor has a max resolution of 1920x1080. When I switch over to the vga channel, the 360 recognizes the native resolution and allows me to switch over to 1920x1080, however; as hard as it is to describe, the image doesn't truly look like 1080p.. It's definitely not HD, that's for sure.. Just kind of a blurry and jagged mess. It renders well enough, sure, but I expect 1080p at 1080p.. Which leads me to assume a few things.. Either the VGA cable will not render at 1080p like it claims, or there is some sort of software issue with either the monitor or the 360.

Thanks for your time. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm pretty sure the Xbox can only do 720p so there is some software 'up scaling' going on, hence the picture looks rubbish.

That seems to be the consensus, so the 1080p must only work for the HD DVD add on which I don't have. It's weird though, because 1280x720 doesn't have the black bars like I figured. It moves the screen up a bit, but it's still full screen... Is there a way I can get those black bars and play at the true resolution?
