Asus EAH6850 + Dell U2711 + DVI-D max resolution showing 1920 x 1200 ?!?

Thread Starter 
I've just installed the Asus EAH 6850 card into a PC. Using the PC with a single Dell U2711 which has a native resolution of 2560 x1440. The card has both a DVI-I and DVI-D and I have dual link dvi cable connected from the DVI-D connector to the monitor.

Problem is the maximum resolution only showing 1920 x 1200 !

The tech specs clearly state on there site and the box max dvi resolution of 2560x1600 :

Have the latest drivers and catalyst control software.

What am I doing wrong ?

I don't expect to game with the card at that resolution just standard pc use.

try a different dvi port on your card?

Use the DVI-I output which is Dual LInk (good for up to 2560x1600). See diagram below:-
