Got a Samsung monitor today. HDMI to VGA cable for consoles possible?

I bought a Samsung 2233 monitor today at a yard sale for $10 and it has 1080p, along with HDCP. Will I have issues with any consoles? I plan on using it for my computer at least for DVI but consoles would be a huge plus. I have the consoles listed in my sig.

You won't get sound with an HDMI to DVI cable for consoles, but I think there's a way around it. With some headset for the 360 you had to have the sound come through the composite cables while the video went through HDMI.

What consoles? Xbox 360 has its own VGA cable. PS3 might as well.
