Been using my 30" HD Apple Display on my MBP and been using a 2560 x 1600 resolution. I play lots of WoW (usually on med-high graphics) and I usually have it open on a window so i can reference to safari quickly. Every time I play my MBP starts to make really loud noises compared to when I just play on MBP. Am I over working the MBP in anyway? Sounds like the fan is caught on some object.

Fans are probably just going faster to keep the thing cool enough, get smcFanControl or something to check the speeds the fans are running at.

You could also get any number of the cool widgets to see fan usage. I hardly ever use my powerbook when its not connected to my 22" monitor, my fans go on occasionally when I play games, 3d modeling stuff, or programming. You should be fine with a MBP which is a much better machine. But I wouldn't worry about the sound, as the other poster said, its normal.
