Ghosting is more a function of the monitors response time than its resolution. It needs to be 12ms or less and ideally 8ms or less for ghost free gaming.
Above these figures it could become a problem, but peoples perception varies greatly. If present, ghosting might not be an issue for one person whilst another may find it unwatchable.
As far as blurring is concerned, it would probably blurr text slightly by using non 'native' resolution, though it shouldnt prove a problem whilst gaming.

If you look for the lower resolution you'll see it, but you'll probably not see more than the obvious signs (like bigger jaggies if you don't use AA, and pixelation if you sit too close) in this case as the TV is designed to hide the defects of lower resolution pictures and many games contain constant movement which is very forgiving of resolution.

My biggest concern in using a TV for gaming would be input lag - some delay the picture for hundreds of miliseconds.
