External Monitor on Laptop performance

Hi, Just got an Asus G73 laptop. It has an ATI 5870 1Gb. It also has a HDMI port. Question is: Will playing games on external HDMI Monitor diminish game quality performance. The fact of using an external monitor, does it make the graphics card work harder thus decreasing performance.

Possibly

It depends on the frame rate, and resolutions you would run on the computer screen and HDMI monitor. In either case your 1 Gig GFX should be able to handle it

What would be more important? having a higher frame rate on the LCD, or better resolution on the HDMI monitor?
