its the hdmi thats limiting your resolutionyou have to use a display port connection to get that resolutionso if your existing video card has a display port output then try that it will probably get full res
I just got a 30" apple cinema display and damn that screen has some nice natural colour
As far as i know the IPS panel in that monitor is only 8-bit.Edit: it is 8-bit with ARC for an emulated 10-bit, but either way the pro workstation cards are well out of the price range.

It sounds like it has nice color right out of the box. This Dell was nowhere close, but it looks good now. Stuff on the web looks great after tuning it up with the Spyder as well. I've always like the Apple monitors, but I'm not a fan of the glossy screen. Not sure if they work on a PC, either?

The one with the 670m ($300 more) have a display and DVI ports and both units have HDMI 1.4a. I just Googled around and found that the newer HDMI spec appears to support higher resolutions - can anyone confirm that?http://www.hdmi.org/manufacturer/hdmi_1_4/hdmi_1_4_faq.aspx#1Here is a link to the two notebooks (desktop replacements, really)http://www.reflexnotebook.ca/laptops-notebooks/screen-size/15-display/sager-np6350.htmlhttp://www.reflexnotebook.ca/laptops-notebooks/screen-size/15-display/sager-np9150.htmlI thought I would be fine with the 6350 model for my needs and think the NP6350's HDMI port will support monitors beyond 1920x1080.
HDMI 1.4 can do 1920x1200 but cant stretch to the 2560x1440 of the dellssame all the usb graphics cards max out at 1920x1200 so not sure of any way to get dual screens at 2560x1440 each on a macbook pro (2011) also Dell documentation states that the U2711 HDMI port is (internally) limited to 1920x1080 only way to get max res is with a display port or dual link dvi
