Drywall instead of a casing

I replaced the old steel windows in my basement with vinyl. Now I want to bring the drywall up to the windows instead of using a wood casing. (Gives it that modern look.) My question is: How do I finish the cut edge of the sheetrock that will touch the vinyl window? I assume it needs something done with it or else it may start crumbling. Thanks!

It has to be taped and textured.

There are "J" molding edges that are made specifically for covering raw edges on sheetrock. They come in plastic and galvanized, 1/2" or 5/8" (maybe even 3/8")

I believe that this would suit your needs.
