Yes, most LCD's have a native resolution of 1280x1024. Meaning that they look best at that resolution. You can always stretch your wallpaper (In DISPLAY PROPERTIES) so that it will still fill the entire screen at the higher resolution then what the wallpaper was originally made for. Sometimes the pictures will look fine, but other times it will make the picture look worse. It's up to you whether it looks good or not.

That really depends on the power of your computer. You can try changing the resolution, but if you notice the game is running alot slower then you were used to playing it, then I suggest you change it back to 1024x768. It will still look okay. Comes down to your preference whether or not the slow-down of running the game at the higher resolution is worth it or not.
I'm guessing that I should also change the res in the games I play too then.

Changing the res to 1280 will make reading text very difficult. Everything is shrunk down in proportion. Many web pages use small type and with 1280 resolution they will be just about unreadable. I suggest that you go back to the 1024 X 768 resolution to give your eyes a break and to avoid headaches. Everything will look quite good despite not being shown at the "native resolution".

Forunatley there are easy and simple things to make icons and text bigger very easily this allows you to have high res and its many advantages and be able to read text, which isnt a porblem as long as you arent half blind or are not wearing your glasses.
Even then on internet pages if its to small hold the control key and use the mouse wheel to scroll in and out altering the text size.
1280 is a common size its easy to find wallpapers in that size.
