Default Dell 2405FPW and 6800GT: Good Gaming Combination?

My monitor is fading fast, and I need to replace it. The Dell 2405FPW looks great and is in the money ballpark.

Question is whether I will have gaming performance issues with my system, since the native resolution on that monitor is 1920x1200. My current system comprises an Abit IC7 M/B, P4 3.0GHz, 2GB RAM, and Leadtek 6800GT.

I am running most games at 1600x1200, although BF2 and HL2 need performance tweaks to keep them acceptable at this resolution. I am mostly playing WoW right now, and it is smooth at 1600x1200 most of the time.

Question is: would there be any notable performance difference between 1920x1200 and 1600x1200 with the 6800GT, or would performance be only slightly slower, if changed at all? I have the feeling that if there was a difference, it would be something I could live with, especially when you count the benefits of having widescreen.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts on this.
