[CentOS] LUKS full disk Encryption question

 From RHEL docs:
"The default implementation of LUKS in Red Hat Enterprise Linux is AES 
128 with a SHA256 hashing. Ciphers that are available are:

     AES - Advanced Encryption Standard - FIPS PUB 197
     Twofish (A 128-bit Block Cipher)
     Serpent
     cast5 - RFC 2144
     cast6 - RFC 2612"

My question is:
What will be the performance impact on my Celeron 1.73 GHz CPU and/or 
hdd speed?
