Yes you will.  You'll just need to buy an HDMI to DVI cable (and then a DVI-VGA adaptor if your monitor doesn't have DVI).

It should preferably support 1280 x * resolution natively though so you can get 720p.  There are a few LCD monitors out that support 1900x1200, which is suitable for 1080i/p.

Yes you can. However, you'll need a tuner to input the console like this one.  I use my Viewsonic tuner to play my PS2 games on my monitor and it works great!  The graphics appear only slightly fuzzy due to the PS2 resolution being lower than that of a conventional monitor.  But it's still sharp enough to read even smallest text.  However, the increased resolution of the PS3 will solve this minor issue.  It'll look great on a monitor using a tuner like mine.  My tuner is an earlier model that costs less that ViewSonic's current one.  Try this search on eBay if you're interested.  You can easily get on of these for $60 or $70.  And it's totally worth it!  The tuner allows you to switch channels from your PC's desktop to your game console.  There are a lot of VGA adapters out there that say they'll do this, but many really suffer as far as the game's appearance on your monitor is concerned.  This is the way to go!  Xbox looks even sharper.
