AMD 5670 and Dell U2715H: 2560x1440 possible?

I am using an AMD 5670 on my Dell 9100 desktop (circa 2010) and just got a Dell U2715H monitor. I can't seem to get the max monitor resolution of 2560x1440 so far.

I have tried with a hi-speed HDMI cable and that didn't do better than 2048x1152.  I also connected a white DVI cable to the card and then connected to the monitor by using an adapter that went from a female DVI to a male DisplayPort plug.  That didn't work either.  On AMD Catalyst is says the Max Reported Resolution for the display is 2048x1152.

 

But despite the info from the AMD site below, my card only has a the following outputs:

HDMI, DVI (white) and VGA (blue).  Shouldn't it also have a DP out as in the specs?  Also, how do i tell if my DVI output is dual-link, even tho the specs say ti should be?

Many thanks.  The monitor is nice, but not worth it if I can't get 2560 resolution.  I am mainly doing photo and video editing and not gaming. Do i need to create a custom setting for the card?
