if the source info on the optoma says 1080p then the ps3 is carrying out the upscaling.

if you switch upscaling off on the ps3 then either the optoma has to upscale or the picture will not fit the screen.

i prefer the ps3 rather than my optoma hd20 carrying out the upscaling so i'd be inclined to say leave as is. test both scenarios and find which one you prefer.

the only way to stop the ps3 upscaling your media files is to untick 1080p and 1080i output in the ps3 display settings.
PS3™ | Video Output Settings

you can press the triangle button on the ps3 when playing the files and switch to original size but then you wont be able to upscale via the projector.

oh ok cool...i thought maybe having them all selected made it choose best res since it bumped 720 vids to 1080 but games stayed 720...

yep, thats how i have it setup aswell as i prefer the ps3 carrying out the upscaling rather than the pj.

you cant do much about the games though if they are native 720p. the projector will have to upscale them.
