They will arrest you, you will go to jail and depending on what the warrant is for they will set a bond amount which you will have to pay before you can be released. If you cannot pay it you will stay in jail until your court date at which point your charges will either be dropped (not likely), you will be sentenced to more time or the judge will give you a fine to pay and credit you with time served and you will go back to jail for several hours to go through the release process. It is really in your best interest to turn yourself in by simply going to the jail and telling them you want to turn yourself in. It makes things alot easier and makes you look better.
