BFG 7800GTX OC PCI-e Does not support dual link?

I cant find anywhere on the box, or website that says specifically that this card supports dual-link, just 2 DVI-I connectors.

I have a new 30in dell monitor connected to it and the max is 1280x1024, although new drivers are installed for both the video card and monitor. The vid drivers show that 2560 x 1600 is supported by this monitor.

Anyone help me out? Appreciate it.

    OK, everyone.

    Please refocus you attention on the Dell 3007 Monitor. To this point everyone is focusing their attention on video cards. Which I am finding out is the wrong approach. The Dell 30” has two separate EDIDs built into the unit. One will recognize video cards capable of supporting resolutins of 2560 x 1600. The other side of the monitor will recognize DVI (dual link) cards below the native resolution of the monitor. If your card will not transmit the 25 x 16, the monitor default to the second EDID which will only support a max resolution of 1280 x 800…period.

    I am running a Dell XPS 1710 and Nvidia Go 7900 GS. The card will support a max resolution of 1920 x 1200 external DVI but this is not enough to activate the EDID side of the monitor that supports more than 1280 x 800.

    If Dell would allow the monitor to recognize the DVI output of the Nvidia 7900Gs which is maxed out @ 1920 x 1200 in DVI… then we could at least enjoy a greater resolution than the default 1280 x 800.
