    My iMac is the old 21.5inch 2009 version with a max display resolution of 1920x1080.

    May I ask if I can connect it to a Dell U2713H/U2713HM monitor and use its max resolution of 2560x1440?

    If I can, which of the following 2 ways to use to connect the iMac and Dell monitor?
    1. use "Apple's mini displayport to dual-link DVI adapter" and "Dell's dual-link DVI cable"? or
    2. use a "mini displayport" to "displayport" cable?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    MacTracker says : ´External Resolution : Up to 2560 by 1600 pixels'.

    Yes for the resolution.

    As for the connection, both should work, but please wait for some one else to confirm, since I never tested myself.
