mostly you will not face problems and when you open a any solution it will ask you to convert to 2008

As stated above, 2005 is forward compatible, after a conversion via 2008/2010/2012

It is not backword compatible.

Also, if you have additional components such as infragistics, some may be outdated and will have to be repaired.

Otherwise, you will have no, or minimal imperfections durring the process
It's easy to test it. Simply copy the 2005 project and back it up. Then upgrade to project to 2008 and test it. If there's any problem, just rebuild the 2005 project until you're satisfied that you know what the problems are.
