Will my FPS Drop?

I currently have the rig that is listen below \/
I have a small 15" 1024x768 VGA Flat Screen Monitor.
I am getting a Acer 20" 1600x900 DVI monitor on Friday. I am wondering if FPS in games will drop alot from this resolution increase.
I do not want to have dual displays because the 3870 heats up very well with 2 monitors.

More about will drop
  1. The 20" screen has twice the pixels of the 15" screen. So yes, your performance would drop considerably. But the 20" screen isn't very big itself so a 3870 should be enough for medium settings for many games.
  2. I saw some benchmarks and it dropped only about 5 frames
  3. HD3870 is a (still) good card for 20" monitor, so don't worry too much about that... :)
