Default Conflicted and in need of opinions

I recently decided it was time to upgrade from my current system (Q6600, 4GB of RAM, HD5750). My video requirements aren't as high as they once were and I was hoping to move to an Ivy Bridge system with HD4000 graphics.

My monitor is an issue. As far as I understand, none of the on-board DVI ports will support a resolution greater than 1920x1080. I have a Dell 3007WFP with a resolution of 2560x1600 and only DVI as an input option.

If on-board DisplayPort supports my resolution, my options seem to be:

- get a dedicated video card with Dual-link DVI
- get a motherboard with on-board DP + an active DP adapter
- sell my monitor and get something with a DP input (would probably end up with a 24" instead).

Any opinions?
