Got my X-Star DP2710 from Korea the other day, and as I was already aware it only has a Dual Link DVI port for the video. As I am so impressed with this monitor I am tempter to get another for dual monitors, but is this even possible as they would both only has a DVI output and my graphics card (MSI GTX 670) only has one input.

You'll need two DVI's to drive them, if you don't have that, you'll need an active Display Port to DVI adapter, though from what I gather they are pretty expensive.

I think you are good.
For 2560 x 1440, you will need a dual link dvi cable that should come with your monitor.
Your GTX670 has two dvi outputs that should be capable of attaching two hi res monitors.
In the past, I connected two such monitors to my GTX780 with no issue.
I am expecting delivery of a second 2560 x 1600 from Korea. I have heard good things about them.
Here is a link that explains the whole dvi thing.

If you have any doubts, try connecting your current monitor to the other dvi port on your card.

Thanks for the help was not aware that you could plug a DVI-D cable into a DVI-I port but looks like you can (just tried it as you said). Will definitely be saving up for my second monitor now, they are such a steal at the price!

It took me a while to figure that out too.
The last D in DVI-D stands for digital only.
The last I in DVI-I stands for stands for integrated which has both digital and analog capabilities.
Either supports dual link.
