Quite the opposite - the higher the resolution, the better quality the effects.
The GTX 260 should be fine for driving the 1920x1080 display + generating HLSL effects. Obviously the higher the resolution, the more GPU power is needed to draw them.
There are some HLSL settings that bring even my 1GB GTX 460 to its knees, it's been a while since I played around with it so I don't remember which ones.
When using HLSL, you are supposed to disable the other post processing settings - bilinear filtering, prescale (HLSL has its own prescale setting) and effects png (HLSL uses aperture.png).
This is my current HLSL configuration (from mame.ini) that I use for all games at 1280x1024:
I don't know what happens if you use these settings on a display with a higher resolution, it'll probably look different.
You can tweak all the parameters from the sliders menu in real time while mame is running.
