if you want a nice-looking and accurate DOS, you need a sizable
number of k-points (typically larger than what you need for a good scf).
Also, if you want your DOS to cover the energy range of conduction
bands, you typically need more bands for the DOS than for a scf  
You can run the projwfc analysis after the scf step, though
