Scaling pretty much = stretching, so, yeah, it's going to be blurry compared to running it a native resolution. It shouldn't be too bad, depending on how good a job the GPU does at scaling. I scale it up to 1680x1050 and it doesn't look bad at all.

I preserve the aspect ratio, myself. Since your display is 16:10, you'll see small black bars at the top and bottom of your screen, but everything other than the HUD will be proportional.

Fix their home team score on the board to the debt clock, they can win every game 17,000,000,000,000 to 24. Losing team gets taxed by the IRS 100%, then droned."
