It's not a TREMENDIOUS difference, the only differene is DVI-I is digital, and so the picutre is more crisp and clear than VGA......

I have a great example for this, A few years ago when I purchased my first DVI compatible computer monitor, I hooked up both the VGA and DVI inputs and put a very high resolution image up on the screen and then toggled from VGA to DVI, the colors just JUMP right out at you and the images are much crisper and less blurred - huuuge difference.

No, just a converter wont cut it - keep in mind "a chain is only as strong as its weakest link", if you run any part of the DVI signal through VGA, it will all be degraded to VGA quality, it wont have the same DVI quality even if you upconvert back to DVI at some later point, you need a DVI output on the monitor, a DVI cable plugged into it, and a DVI port on your video card to plug that cable into.
